Searching by Year

It is possible to enter a full 4-digit year or a partial year to restrict search results.

The following examples demonstrate how this search criteria can be used :

Enter 1865 to restrict search of records to this year only.

Enter 186 to restrict search to decade from 1860 to 1869 inclusive.

Enter 18 to restrict search to 19th century ( likewise 17 and 19 can be used ).

Enter 1 to restrict search to 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.

Enter 2 to restrict search to 21st century ( no data for this yet anyway! ).

Wildcards CANNOT be used with year criteria - it must be a number!
