Catalog Search

This page is for future use and this feature is not yet available...

Area historical society and museum collections are not generally available to the public because of the rarity and delicate nature of the items they contain. Some of these items may be accessed via the virtual exhibits on this website, and may sometimes be viewed in the permanent exhibits of the historical society or museum possessing the item. The catalog search function that follows will allow the public to view many items in these collections, while allowing the originals to be stored in safe and protected storage. Our web catalog project is an ongoing, labor-intensive effort. We hope you will find it useful and informative.

The catalog search uses simple keyword lookups. If you are having difficulty locating something, try different keywords or a variation in spelling. Multi-word keys should be entered in double (") quotes. Please do not enter special characters.

Keywords entered in the "Results Must Contain" box will return results containing exactly those keywords. You can further refine your search results by also entering keywords in the "Results May Contain" box. Search results containing these keywords will score higher than those not containing those keywords. Finally, you can refine your search further by entering keywords in the "Results Must Not Contain" box to eliminate search results containing exactly those keywords.
