    Grant... In addition to what Deb said: One can set up favorites within Web Preferences. Then when one chooses the Search the Web command and then chooses Search Favorites, all of the favorites are searched simultaneously with each popping up in their own tab in your browser. Maybe you already know this. It is a great time saver.

      Bob:

      I just tested the Reunion web search function again this morning. I think I will incorporate it as a regular step in my process.

      At the moment I am building a family tree in both Ancestry and FamilySearch. I find that a very efficient way of finding all of the low hanging fruit in the way of sources. I was actually surprised how many sources showed up in Family Search which were not in Ancestry.

        Bob, where do I find the "Search the Web" and "Search Favorites" commands?

          Start with Reunion > Preferences. There you can select which websites you want to search and also pick your favourites. Once that is setup head to your family view and move your cursor over the tick mark in the top right corner of the person of interest. A drop down box appears within which you will find the search the web command. You can also use the drop down box to find your way back to preferences.

            The tick mark is one method. Right clicking/control clicking anywhere in either person box, brings up the exact same drop down menu..
