Settlers Database back online

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

For all those who have missed the Simcoe County Branch Settlers database, I am pleased to let you know that it is now back online. Navigate the menu above (Resources -> Branch Resources -> Settlers Database) to search, or click on the button to the right.

Search fields are located on the right of the screen. Depending on your device, you may have to scroll down the page a bit to find them. The “Columns” icon located to the left of the Print/Copy/PDF icons will allow you to select or deselect which columns you would like to view, and which ones to disregard. When you click on the icon, a drop down of column names appears. Click each column name to toggle (on or off) the columns you would like to see. You can choose how many entries you would like displayed on the page using the Show (#) Entries drop down box. The default value is set to 10, however, you can choose to view more if you prefer. Clicking on the arrow in the column title box will sort the column for you. As well, the Print/Copy/PDF icons allow you to print, copy, or save the list of entries for future research.

When you find an entry

Contact the Publications Chair with the Surname, Page Number (Set), and Source (Book Set) for information about how you can obtain the details for the entry. There is a small charge for this service, with proceeds being used to offset the cost of providing this service. Please use “Settlers Database Query” in the subject line of your message.

The Settlers database is updated regularly so be sure to check back from time to time. You never know when you will find something really helpful.

Happy searching …
