The family history website has just made searching easier.
The Original Record says: “We have added a section entitled Sources, on our home page; just scroll down. Here all the sources surname-indexed on the site are listed decade by decade. So it is now possible:
- To see at a glance descriptions of the records indexed year by year. Using control+F [the ‘Find’ facility] you can search through the descriptions for placenames and other words of interest.
- To search individual records for whatever surnames are of interest to you. This is a powerful additional tool, allowing you to search out possible variant spellings, by using wildcards, in any particular index.
