Announcing Mocavo Plus 2.0

31 Oct 2012

In December of last year we launched Mocavo Plus, our paid subscription service, which includes all of the benefits of Mocavo Basic along with several additional research tools to help you make discoveries faster and with less effort.  Since then, we gathered feedback from the Mocavo Community and built several new capabilities to supercharge your research.

Today we are excited to share these new features with you.  In addition to Mocavo Plus Advanced Search and our Automated Search services we have added the following new features:

Discovery Alerts – Harness Mocavo’s powerful search engine by creating a Discovery Alert. You will get updates when new information about your ancestor is added to Mocavo. You can create Discovery Alerts from both your shared family tree and also by simply saving a search. Discovery Alerts save you from having to search over and over again for the same ancestors.  Instead we run your search automatically and email you when you have new results.

Browsing History – This has been one of our most requested features, so we know you’re going to love it.  With your Browsing History, you won’t waste time looking for something you’ve already found.  All of the search results that click on or rate get stored in your Browsing History for easy access in the future.  This way it’s easy to keep track of research that you want to explore further.

Advanced Document Search – We make it easy for you to find your ancestors in books and other documents in our collection.  Enter a search term and see it highlighted in the text of the book.  You can also easily find the next occurrence of that search term in the same book or document.  Give your eyes a rest and go straight to that needle in the haystack.

Smart Trees – Mocavo will fill in the gaps in your family trees for you. Do you know of a great-great-grandfather but can’t seem to get any leads on the great-great-grandmother? Or maybe you only know of three distant cousins but there is a fourth one as well! Mocavo Smart Trees will find these holes in your history and suggest new matches for you.

We want to also take this time to say a big THANK YOU to all of our loyal subscribers.  We are still a young company, but growing every day and working as hard as we can to help you learn about your family history.  We have a lot more up our sleeves and, with your help, we are working to bring all of the world’s genealogical information online for free putting everyone’s family history within reach.
