Advanced Search

The Advanced Search button can help you be more specific with your search. You can search for a word or phrase within a search category or use multiple categories to further narrow down your search results. For example, searching White in the Search by People field will bring up any records associated with a member of the White family, without having to sift through black & white photographs.

Phrase searching is available in Advanced Search. To search for a specific phrase, you must put the phrase in quotes (e.g. “Civil War”) or else rather than searching for Civil War, you will get results for everything containing Civil and War.
