How to search:
  • Entries for City, State and Country refer to the person's place of birth.
  • Birth and death dates do not have to have the month and day, but if they are used they must be entered as mm/dd/yyyy. For example, 01/02/1901 NOT 1/2/1901.
  • It is possible to enter data in more than one field. For example, Birth - 1901, City - Houston, Medical Specialty - Surgery should yield one result - Louis Estes Williford.
