Fun With Search Terms

It's time for another round of "Fun with Search Terms!" People type certain words or phrases into search engines. If the combination is right, my blog shows up in the search results. Sometimes the searches are funny. Sometimes I can provide more information to users, if only they'd comment on my blog. Either way, I enjoy the process. Please note, these searches are anonymous so I don't know who is stumbling on my blog. I just comment in the hope that they find it again.

best genealogy blo
I'm going to ignore the obvious joke and assume you meant "best genealogy blog." If so, then you've come to the right place. Of course, if you don't feel that my blog is the best, consider looking for others at You can also nominate your favorites for the 2011 Family Tree 40.

genealogy blogging schedule
No help here. I don't believe in a schedule. It's your blog. You can post whenever you want. However, if my "schedule" you are talking about writing posts ahead of time and posting them later, then you want to pre-schedule posts.

we are trees
If you say so.

family history expo photos
At the Family History Expos Facebook page, there is a place where the photo albums for each Expo are listed.

how to get my grandfather's SS-5
I've answered questions like this one before, so that's why this blog keeps coming up in the search results. If your grandfather has passed within the last few decades, he is likely on the Social Security Death Index (SSDI), which you can search for free at GenealogyBank. If you have trouble locating him in the SSDI, try getting his death certificate, which may have his social security number (SSN) on it. Don't panic if you don't have an SSN, if just costs more to order his SS-5. Once you have enough information about your grandfather, you can order copies of SS-5s online here.

john r williamson family tree, arkansas
Yes, I know all about this. Wanna know why? Because I am in that family tree. You must have found what you needed from my blog, because you did not contact me. Sigh....another cousin I will never know. NO FAMILY TREE FOR YOU! Unless you email me, then we're cool.

That's it for now. Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. I know - don't you just hate it when they don't leave comments when they obviously have someone in common with you.

    As always, I enjoy reading your search terms ;-)

  2. Someone arrived on my blog this month by searching the family segst. I'm still trying to figure that one out.
