Searching through a PDF can be different from searching through other record sets. All search results will bring you to the page on which your search word has been found. We have included some guidelines to help you use the Text search feature.
Understand that this feature uses direct search only. It will only search for the exact word or phrase you write in the search field.
To search for your ancestor by the name as it would appear on the monumental inscription
For example, if your relative was known as ‘Beth’ it is likely that the name used for her inscription would be ‘Elizabeth.’
If you are unable to find your relative on your first search you can try different name variations.
To search by date please note that within the document the months have been abbreviated.
For example, if you know that your ancestor died in August 1913 you will search for ‘Aug 1913.’
