GUIDE TO USING THE INDEX
A user can search for a single category or all of them at the same time to narrow the search. The search function is set up as “contains” the information, so I would recommend using the smallest amount of data in the text box (ex: Philip instead of Philip II of France, Ann instead of Anna or Anne) to make sure a match doesn’t slip through.
- I have included categories such as name, century, parents, partner, etc.
- The “associated locations” are reduced to large geographic regions, including:
- British Isles
- Low Countries
- Eastern Europe
- Asia Minor.
- I have also included a way to search for whether or not a woman was part of what I term a “maternal mortality cluster.” One can click “yes” for “relative died in childbirth,” and then either use those results or simultaneously click mother, sister, daughter, etc.
- A cluster will have at least the two linked people, but it may include up to four. For “Relative Died in Childbirth, Other”, this is a category that includes stepmothers, husbands’ other wives, and grandmothers. You’ll be able to see the specifics when you work with the results.
