4 Apr Update - Southall web site has search engine

In Reply to: Starting Southall web site again by Susan Sasek of 566

I've finally uploaded all of the information that I had on the old Southalls in America web site (I'm pretty sure at least) & added even more. I'm still in the process of transcribing/adding records pretty much daily.

Since the site now has so many documents and files, I knew I had to get a search engine to help people research specific individuals/places. Today I found a free search engine & set that up.

For the entire site, the search engine log results from earlier today -- "search index contains 1000 documents. A total number of 93995 words were found and indexed."

I put the search box at the top of the main Southall page:

Until I finish transcribing and uploading files to the site, please don't e-mail me with queries about specific individuals or families -- please post those to this board or the one at rootsweb -- I check the posts often & there are a lot of other Southall researchers out there who can help too -- many heads are better than one :)

Special thanks to Cathy Harris Helms for recently submitting several Southall files for the site -- (note to Cathy -- I put you on my "genealogical angels" list :).

My regular yahoo e-mail account that I've used for years is down -- cannot receive mail. If you would like to submit your Southall (or Southall related) research, please use the e-mail link available on my "contact page" -- I'll keep that page updated with the e-mail account that I'm using for the Southall family. My contact page link is:

Since freepages has given me unlimited web space (thanks you freepages!), with a little help from other Southall researchers who are willing to submit their research -- this site can be a very useful tool for those researching the Southall family/related lines. Many thanks to all who have already submitted files for the site! For those that haven't, please consider sharing your research/files for the Southall site. If you can't or don't have time to transcribe or scan them, I can do that if you "snail-mail" (means send by regular mail) copies to me.

Susan :)
