Using "Date Range" in Google Search

Thanks to Dick Eastman, writing in his Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter, for this tip. He shows in detail how to limit Google Search results based on when the search target was published on the web. That is, you can search for an ancestor and opt to show only news articles that were published on the web in the past month, past week, etc.

This can be used in a sequence of searches: first search for an ancestor exhaustively, then each month search again with the date limitation to see only the new things that have been added to the web. This obviously saves you from having to sift through repeated information.

Dick's article contains a good explanation of how to use the feature and contains plenty of pictures to demonstrate the mouse clicks.
