Background on Mocavo
Mocavo is the world’s first and largest genealogy search engine. We index over six billion names and are the fastest search in the industry by more than ten times. Since launching in March 2011, we’ve created an amazing service that our users find efficient and relevant. We’re also beginning to introduce tools to make the research of family history an open and collaborative experience.
So, you may be thinking, “why don’t genealogists just use Google?” While Google is the go-to search engine for most of us on a daily basis, searching Google for an ancestor is likely to bring back millions of results for living people that have no relevance to your research. There are also millions of genealogy pages not indexed by Google. Just like jobs on Indeed, or travel on Kayak, genealogy research is best on a vertical search engine.
The word Mocavo has no other meaning of which we know, but we hope our users come to associate it with the world’s #1 genealogy search engine. (We’ve also mistakenly been called Macao, Mocabo, Mocaco, Mocaro, Mocayo, Mocova, Mocovo, Mojave, Moncavo, Monvado, Moravia, Moscavo, Movaco, Movado, Movavo, and Moyaco.)
