New Feature: Search historical records by location


We’ve added an exciting new feature to SuperSearch that makes it even easier and faster to browse and search historical records by geographic location.

SuperSearch contains billions of global historical records and tree profiles from different data collections. The records come from various countries and various regions within those countries.

Searching for your ancestors is now even easier, as you search for data by geographic locations. This provides results relevant to only that specific location,  helpful when you are looking for a person from a specific place.

New! Search by location

Each location on in the map is clickable:

Locations are further subdivided into sub-locations. Once you select a location,  see all the sub-locations. Choose one, or choose to search all:

We’re always expanding the data collections included in SuperSearch, especially global content useful for family research in your country!
