Mocavo Announces New Search Engine

Introducing: Mocavo.co.uk
by mocavo
Today we’re thrilled to launch Mocavo.co.uk – a United Kingdom version of Mocavo that will search websites, blogs, records and content specifically from, or discussing, English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh decent.
While Mocavo.com searches sites and blogs from around the world, and will continue to do so, Mocavo.co.uk will focus specifically on the United Kingdom, giving those who wish to narrow their search to that region the ability to do just that.
So if you descend from UK families, be sure to check out our newest addition to the Mocavo search family. As always, we look forward to your feedback, which helps make our services that much better for your research. You can let us know your thoughts at support@mocavo.com or on our Facebook page. Cheers!
