MillionShort, A Different Approach to Searching the Internet

MillionShort is a unique search engine: it allows you to remove the most poplar websites from consideration in your search. At first this sounds antithetical to a good search, but a little thought will reveal how it may be a good thing.

Often when we search for an ancestor’s name, it will be found in obscure websites, and those hits, if they are listed at all, are shown well down the list. In fact, they may be so far down the list that you never even look at them. MillionShort gives them better visibility.

The search options allow you to choose the number of popular sites to ignore during the search. The options range from remove none to remove one million.

This can be a fun and profitable exploration. Try it at MillionShort
