With help from the fine people at Google, we have incorporated a search tool into the main entry page of the Mafiahistory.us website. The tool will search for relevant articles on Mafiahistory.us and related sites (including Writersofwrongs.com and Buffalomob.com). We hope that this will guide visitors to items of interest to them and prevent them from getting lost in the hundreds of pages on these sites.

UPDATE (April 4, 2021): To reduce front-page clutter, the search box has been moved to its own page on the site. It can be accessed through the This Site / Site Search main menu selection. You can reach it directly using this link: Mafiahistory.us Site Search

The first few items in any search result are likely to be advertisements. These should be grouped separately from the main body of search results and each advertisement should be clearly designated with the boxed word, “Ad.” We hope our visitors do not mind these advertisements. (The fine people at Google need to make a little money every now and then.) Of course, visitors are encouraged to click on any advertising links they find intriguing. (The fine people at Mafiahistory.us might make a little money too.)

We would be happy to receive feedback from visitors regarding this new addition to the website.
