Date Search Tips
Use the "Date Search" box to enter a specific date—or enter the date range if you know the approximate date(s) of the historical content you are seeking to find in the online archives.
If you use the date range option, then enter a date range that includes the entire life span of your family member. For example, including a few years prior to their birth and a few years after their death can yield positive search results. Or if you are looking for an obituary record, use a date range of a few years before and after the known death date. Our genealogy search engine accepts a variety of date formats to help you easily find your family’s history.
