New Search Engine February 2014 news release from MyTrees.com :
Fficiency Software, Inc. announces a technology breakthrough called Family Relationship Searching (FRS) found only at the website. FRS helps the genealogist to quickly find their ancestor in large pedigree databases. It bubbles the relevant pedigree data hits to the top of the list. The genealogist no longer has to wade through mounds of irrelevant search hits. FRS pulls that elusive "needle" to the top of the proverbial haystack.
With FRS the genealogist first enters the ancestor's information. Then, related family members, such as brothers and sisters, children, and - of course - spouse and parents may be entered. "Exact spelling" can be specified or a phonetic equivalent. Pedigree families are then quickly found. One may even find an ancestor without entering any names, just family relationships. "Family Relationship Searching is a technological breakthrough in searching pedigree data that will change the way ancestors are found and greatly speed up the searching process" states Dr. Frank Carman, the President and CEO of Fficiency Software, the developer of the technology. When asked if this technology might be licensed to other entities, Dr. Carman responded: "That is a possibility."
Fficiency Software, Inc., the developer of the MyTrees.com website, is an Internet pioneer. Fficiency Software, Inc. has been developing genealogy websites and technology since 1996. MyTrees.com offers a free online genealogy program with no limitations on the number of ancestors or family/genealogical pictures that can be stored by their patrons. MyTrees.com also offers free searches of all their databases. The full MyTrees.com archive is over a half billion names. To see details or download a pedigree, a small fee may apply. Free access is given for submitting a family tree.=========================================================================================
