Search Tips

1)  Don’t include too much information in your search form — it’s better to start out general and narrow your seach if needed.  

2)  The search engine will search for text you input in the name fields anywhere in those fields.  For example, if you input “olt” in the last name search box, it will return results not only for Olt, but Oltmann, Colter, Holt, etc. as well.

3)  While the birth date range and age range are powerful fields to use in a search, please note that some of this information was typically missing from the early obituaries, and those records will not be included in your list of results if you use those search fields.
