An invaluable tool when doing my Genealogy Research is a piece of software called Search made by Sandman Software. Their websites description is:
Searches text files for strings and combination of strings. Has useful or / and / and not search combinations, and can also use regular expressions. New in version 3, is the built-in viewer / editor that highlights the matched strings and lines.

I have been using this software for about four years, and the way that I use it is mainly to search text based databases that I have accumulated throughout the years, for example vital records, voter lists, indexes of census, and others. It displays the line of text where there is a match and it searches multiple documents at the same time.
Try it out right now they have a 30 day trial period and if it serves your needs SadMan Software Search is priced at $29.00 for a personal or corporate single-user license. I usually don’t like to spend money but this is the only software that I have found that gets the job done. If anyone has a free alternative that does the same job as this software let me know.
Disclaimer: I am in no way or manner affiliated in any form or manner with this website, try out before you buy. Just wanted to share software that can be useful to any family historian or genealogist.
