How Do I Search This Collection?[edit | edit source]
To begin your search it is helpful to know the following:
- The name of the estate owner or occupant
- Approximate date of the mortgage or deed
- The residence or location of the estate or parcel of land.
To search the collection:
⇒Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page
⇒Select the "Archive"
⇒Select the "Series and title"
⇒Select the "Volume and year" which takes you to the images
Indexes are available on some of these groups of images. If indexes are available, check these for the name first. Indexes are usually located at the beginning of a group of images or at the end. They maybe alphabetized by the first name or the last name. Find your ancestor’s name and look for the locator information next to the name (such as volume and year). This will help you find the record you are looking for in the collection.
Look at each image comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine if the image relates to them. You may need to look at several images and compare the information about the individuals listed in those images to your ancestors to make this determination. Keep in mind:
- There may be more than one person in the records with the same name.
- You may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name.
- Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life.
