No, it’s not genealogy, but some of you are going to thank me anyway:

“FictionFinder is a project of OCLC Research that provides access to 2.8 million works of fiction found in the OCLC WorldCat database.

With FictionFinder, you can search for books, eBooks, and audiobooks by titles, authors, ISBNs, and other information such as literary awards and book summaries.

Note: You can, in fact, use “genealogy” as a search term to discover works of fiction that feature family history / genealogical research in their plots!
