What it is


How to use it


  • Each volume contains a number of sections (i.e. transcriptions of various cemeteries).
  • The pages are not numbered, but each section begins with a sheet of stiffer paper (cardstock).
  • Flip through until you find the section you need.
  • Each section contains its own index of surnames.
  • The index may be either at the front or the back of the section. It refers you to the transcription, which will also be found within that section.
