Search Tips

You can search for:

  • Personal / Place / Locality name
  • Subject (subject associated with name, place or locality)
  • Names & places are spelled as found in the records.
  • Minimizing search criteria maximizes the number of records returned.
    For example a search for "Canad" returns "Canady, Canaday & Canada".
