Using the Search Page
You can use this box to enter a single keyword or several keywords to search on, avoid using punctuation marks as it may confuse the search.
Choosing one of the following options from the drop-down list at the end of the search by keywords box allows you to make your search more accurate.
AND - searches for records that contain all of the keywords that you entered anywhere in the text.
The search will not include the notes field as this contains lots of text and may appear to bring up images seemingly unconnected with your search. However, if you wish to include this field in your search place a tick in the ‘ Search all text fields ' box.
Search by Place
You can combine a keyword search with a ‘Search by Place' to look for certain keywords within a particular town or village. For example if you wanted to look for all the tram pictures you can type the word tram in the keywords search box and click search, this will bring up several thousand images. However you might want to see just the pictures of trams in Chesterfield so you can select Chesterfield from the drop-down list.
You also have the option to narrow your search to a particular local area i.e. Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham or Nottinghamshire. Click in the box that says Click here for area to select one of them from the list or leave it blank to search all the areas
Search by Map
Selecting this option allows you to search for pictures of towns and villages by clicking on them in a map. Click this button to see a map of all the districts in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, click on one of them to see a larger map with place names on it. Now click on a town name to look for all the pictures in that place. Please note that, due to limitations of space, not all places are shown.
