You can increase the number of 'Displayed Records Per Page' to any number.

Remember to reset the form between searches if appropriate.

If the displayed results look 'squished' then expand the browser window.

Some browsers, or versions, do not process this search form as designed.
This is especially true for the Internet Explorer browsers (older versions).
You may wish to update your browser to the latest version.

NOTE: Date formats vary in the database. You may need to try all versions.
No wildcard search capability. Where no date exists in the database, a blank space or N.A. may be entered.

Use the 'contains' option and enter the year if known.
E.g. 05 or 1805 or 1905 or 2005.

EXAMPLE: If you are searching for a death year of 1934 you should consider doing two searches. First using year CONTAINS 1934, and if no results using 34. Remember, if no death year was in the cemetery source database a N.A. may be displayed.
