How do I search for something by year?
On the left of our site you will see a search box. Type in the year as e.g. 1920 or 1920s. If you want multiple years, separate years with a comma e.g. 1920, 1960, 2010.

I can't find anything when I type in "red" or "hat"?
Our search engine does not return word queries less than or equal to three letters. A word descriptor with less than or equal to three letters will read "Your query returned no results." We are working on a solution. In the meantime, try other word descriptors, longer than 3 letters, to find what you are looking for.
