Question 1[edit | edit source]

Question 1: Why do I see so many duplicate results when I do a search for an individual in this collection?
Answer 1: Because this collection goes to an affiliate- Fold 3, in order to link to the multiple images on their site, an index result needs to exist for each image they have for a person. For example, in the case of Thomas P. Stockton there are 19 images in Fold 3 - so there ends up being 19 results for a search for Thomas P. Stockton. Going to the result on any of the nineteen will put you in the collection and by clicking on the name at the top of the page a thumbnail view can allow you to navigate through the 19 images.
