The Failings of the Oracle

The Oracle of Google “unexpectedly” failed my son, who of course was waiting until the last minute to finish his homework.  Just try to look up your family tree using a Google search.  Not so much.  It is good to be reminded that one tool doesn’t work for everything.

The Google Timeline feature was interesting to apply to the genealogy research, but a nice family tree certainly didn’t appear by magic.
