If this is your first visit, here are some answers to possible questions you may have.
How can I find out whether a person has been traced?
From the home page, click on NETWORK, then DATABASE. Put the name (SURNAME ONLY!) of the person in the box under Network Search and press the Submit button. If the person's name then appears. The blue button at the right of the name will then open up any further information that may be available.
What if I am unsure how the person's name is spelled?
If you know only part of the name, you can put a % sign after any number of letters. % is the "wildcard" symbol. For example, if you are looking for someone who may be Davis or Davies, enter Dav%.
How can I display all the people from my year group?
To do this, you need to put a % sign in the name box (% is the "wildcard" symbol) and then use the drop down box for the year you started. Note that start year should bring up all the people in a particular year group including any who started later than the first year.
