New Search Feature Added

Entering a name or a date in the search box at the top of the sidebar to the right, will give you a list of all the pages on this site the information appears on. Clicking on one of the items will take you to that page. Unfortunately, the search engine does not highlight the information, so you will have to follow the navigation instructions on the sidebar to find the information you are looking for. You can encase your search term in quotes (i.e. “Smith”), or you can enter your search without quotes. (i.e. Smith). If you use quotes, the search engine will look only for the exact search term (i.e. all occurrences of Smith). If you search without quotes, the search engine will come up with not only Smith, but also any word that Smith might be part of (i.e. Smithfield, Blacksmith, etc.). Experiment for a minute or two, performing searches with quotes and without quotes. Remember that when you get to the page, you will need to follow the instructions on the sidebar for finding a name. That second search is the one that highlights the information for you. The little search box will tell you how many occurrences of the name it found. Up and down arrows on the box will let you navigate from one occurrence of the name to the next.

And naturally, you can still look for information just by clicking on the Obit Index in the sidebar.
