Why can't I search for John L. Smith?
When searching for a specific person, within the database, use the plus symbol next to the
search box to add a second term. For best possible results, put each part of the name in a
seperate box. Unfortunately, with common names, the middle initial cannot be used.
Why won't it let me search with middle initials?
Unfortunately, the only thing you can do is remove the middle initial altogether.
I'm trying to search for the funeral home in the Obituaries, and I can't find anything.
When searching for a specific funeral homes, and you cannot find anything,
search for the funeral home through the publisher instead of body text. You can do this by
clicking the dropdown-box on the search page and selecting publisher. After that, type in the
name of the funeral home, and run the search. If it still does not come up, then check spelling
and other common mistakes.
