Genealogy Research Hints

As we all know the English language is not phonetic; words are not spelled as they are pronounced. This is especially true of two words in one of the most popular hobbies in our country: genealogy and cemetery. When you are searching online for any resources be sure to deliberately misspell these two words as they are frequently misspelled by others.  Deliberately spell genealogy as geneology. Deliberately spell cemetery as cemetary. You will be amazed at the hits you retrieve with the words misspelled.
