How to use the advanced search

Use as many or as few of the categories below as you like. The more you use in one search the more refined your search will be, and the fewer results will be listed. However, the more refined your search is, the more likely that something that you think is relevant might be excluded from the search results. Alternatively, go to the ‘Search for word or phrase’ window, and type in the most appropriate word, phrase, date, number or name that you can think of to match your query, then watch our archive unfold…

If you have any difficulties, contact us and our archivist will conduct a search for you:

  • Show only posts with attached...

  • Object Type

  • Objects tagged with the keywords...

  • Dates

  • Associated People

  • Township

    Some time ago I sent in a couple of photographs of my mothers family Macfadyens of Barrapol. One was a school photograph and the other my grandfather with a clydesdale horse. Have you been able to use them on this site.

      Dear Morag. Thank you for your comment. I am sure that your photographs will be on the website. Did you try the ‘Advanced Search’ function? If you still cannot find what you are looking for, please email me directly at (rather than use the Comment form), and I will conduct a search for you. Best wishes, Janet Bowler – Archive Manager
