Online Index


The goal of the Online Indexing project is to enable local history researchers to quickly locate articles and subject matter in the annual volumes and ensure that the volume remains relevant in the digital age.  In May of 2016, the board engaged Anna-Marie Larsen and Carl Simpson in contract for the project.  The initial indexing is currently 60% complete and we are putting the indexes online as they are proofed and corrected.

Once each volume has been indexed and reviewed, the second phase will begin.  This involves merging all of the text (subject) indexes together and doing the same with the images index.  It is at this time that subject headings and sub-headings will be determined and used to better organize the index.  The fully-searchable finished product will be available on this website.


The format of the online index is a searchable PDF (use ctrl F and search by keyword).  There are two indexes for each volume; one for text including articles and frontispieces; and another for images including photographs, tables and graphs.  The PDFs take the physical look of a traditional back of the book index.  The format of the electronic file used to create the index will give us the option of creating a simple database in the future with more advanced search functionality.

Once the project is complete we will provide a legend and tips on searching.  For now, note that maiden names are in brackets,  nicknames are in quotation marks, and authors are indicated with (A).  To facilitate the eventual merge of the indexes, the volume number appears in brackets or with a colon (we are still sorting out the final style) before the corresponding page number(s) to the reference.
