New: Coordinates on demand

Here's a quick search tip that might save you a bit of hassle from time to time.  Just search for (replace  GEOFEATURE with a name of a site, monument, city, etc.): 

     [   GEOFEATURE coordinates ] 

and you'll get back the Lat/Long for the location of interest.  Here are a few examples. 


(I noticed it also did a spell correction on my search term "harbor.")  

Search on! 


  1. Brilliant - I shared it with my fellow genealogists on Google+ - this search tip is magical. Thanks

  2. Thanks for pointing this out. I noticed you can also get this by typing "latlong" or "lat long" instead of "coordinates" :)
