Historical Records. Stories. Photos. Family Trees. It helps sometimes to pick a focus for your search. Here is a quick fix for that.
On your advanced search form, right above the Search button, you will see a “Restrict to:” section.
- Historical Records
- Family Trees
- Stories & publications
- Photos & maps
Choose 1 or 4 or any combination, but you must choose at least one.
Beware of “sticky” options
This feature is what we call “sticky” because it sticks until you change it. To make it stick, set whatever your options you want and then do a search. Next search, these options will be the same, until you reset and search.
Just remember, if you are looking for Photos and none come up, check your options. You may have set them and forgotten what you’ve set.
