This is essentially a free genealogy search tool that identifies web pages containing genealogical data and indexes names within. Pages are not limited to UK and Irish data so results include ancestors from countries worldwide. It now features a free name search with results across 500 million names.
There is an advanced search option to enable you to filter results through year ranges, geographic area and page type (census, military, immigration etc) and you can log searches, enabling you to keep an ongoing list so that you can rerun a search at a later date for example. This is one search site that's definitely worth a bookmark.
