Selecting this database will lead the Searches to a page where a search box requests an entry of a Surname. A typical document retrieved is provided below, abridged:
Selecting any decade group will cause a search box to appear on the bottom portion of the screen into which the Searcher is to type in the Subject's Surname only (the name formatting is described below). Entering the name and selecting the "Search" button or "Enter" on your keyboard will cause the following example virtual-fiche sheet to appear:
The selected sheet will contain 252 individual frames plus 18 index frames (organized in a 18x15 matrix) where your Subject's name will appear if it's in this database year-window. Rather than selecting each of the 252 individual frames, it is strongly recommended that the Searcher select the "idx" (for index) links at the bottom of the sheet. This will lead you to a page that will provide you with a further name breakdown for each sheet.
