From 13 Sept 2014 Mocavo emailed newsletter:

Reveal the Mysteries of your Family's Past. Indexes can be a very helpful resource for the genealogist. They point the way to original records, they can include additional information to help you properly identify individuals, and they can lead you to original records that are not available online. Sometimes, due to records destruction, they are the only surviving version of the original.  As a Mocavo Basic member, you can search each individual record index collection for free. If you would like to save some time and search more than 420,000 databases at once, consider giving Mocavo Gold a try.

Find the Black Sheep in your family. As we research our family histories, it's easy to find a few black sheep in our family trees. These seemingly shady characters can often reveal some of the most interesting stories in our research. People can become black sheep for many reasons and some of them get that reputation because of their tendency to break the law. Investigate the true stories of your ancestors' past with free access to more than 5 million criminal and court records. As a Mocavo Basic member, you can search each individual criminal and court database for free. If you would like to save some time and search more than 420,000 databases at once, consider giving Mocavo Gold a try. View Criminal and Court Records Now
