- One-Step Webpages : A Potpourri of Genealogical Search ToolThe One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterwards it was expanded to help with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years it has continued to evolve and today includes about 300 web based tools divided into 16 separate categories ranging from genealogical searches to astronomical calculations to last minute bidding on eBay. This presentation will describe the range of tools available and give the highlights of each one.
