Chrome Extension

The RootsSearch Google Chrome Extension makes it easier to use RootsSearch by automatically filling in the search form.

When viewing ancestor profiles or records on genealogy websites, the Chrome Extension will detect the person's information. Then, if you click on the RootsSearch icon in the icon bar, the search page will be loaded with the person's details automatically filled in.

When the Chrome Extension has detected information it will show a badge 1 in the lower-right corner of the icon. If you click the icon when the badge is not showing it will still open the search page but there won't be any information filled in.

In just two clicks you can search FamilySearch for records about someone in your Ancestry family tree or search Mocavo for records about someone in your MyHeritage tree.
