Baptist history search engine

Today I entered into a experiment concerning something I discovered on Google -- creating a customized search engine. I have created Baptist History Search Engine and invite you to visit, try a search, and give me your comments on it. I don't know how good this will be, but can see some possibilities. Your comments might help me improve it.

Interesting. I typed in "England" "police" and "hymn" and got good results on all three.

Thanks, R. L. I am totally unfamiliar with this, never heard of a custom search engine before, but it seems to work well. Did you just select the websites to create it, or is there more to it?

That's pretty much it. I selected websites that I know have Baptist history information. This "custom search engine" narrows the sites that google searches, but increases the likelihood of the information being relevant to Baptist history. Or, IMO, reduces the number of irrelevant hits you might get. At least that the way it seems to me.

Now this is cool.
