Refining your Search Results
This is an example of how to refine your search results using the link for “Online Telemark Census records – 209 collections”
In the image above, the column to the left of the search results has parameters enabling you to further refine your collection search with “Full text” OR a time range. This search feature allows you to limit the collection titles by a tighter name/title or date; it is NOT where you will search for a family name.
In the image above, I refined this search to sources with “Kragerø” in the title/name of the collection. (Use diacritics.) This resulted in 19 returns.
In the image above, the columns to the right of the search results specify if the collection can be searched or browsed. If you want to search for a person’s name, FIRST select from your search returns a database that permits “Search” features, rather than images that only permit browsing or “Browse” features.
In the image above, I selected the searchable database, “Folktelling 1865 for 0801B Kragerø prestegjeld, Kragerø kjøpstad” and can now search for a person’s name within that collection.
Other options at the Digital Archives:
