Search Tips

  • Cut down large results sets by adding information – for example, the range of years the death could possibly have occurred.
  • If you’re not finding your person, try making the search less specific – eliminate the middle name, broaden the date of death, search “Starts With,” using fewer letters (for example, Anders vs Anderson).
  • If you’re unsure of the exact spelling of the name, type in as much as you’re sure of as a “Starts With” search. (For example, “Starts With” search for “Anders” will bring back “Andersen,”  “Anderson,” and “Andersson.”)
  • You can reorganize a result set by clicking on any column header.
  • Sometimes a person was commonly known by their middle name. If you’re not finding your person, you may want to try the first name in the Middle Name field, or even, as a last resort, in the Comments field.
