  1. Bea Tobias Says:

    One of the neatest things about the local histories is that you can search for a family name, and it shows you the page number in every local history with that name.
    It works really well if the name is distinctive and you don’t have a very famous ancestor with many pages. But even if it is Smith or Brown, you can do an advanced search using other names, places or keywords in combination.
