Search Tips
1)  SELECT FILTER drives which category interests you -- ALL LISTINGS shows a detailed list of all categories combined, i.e., Artifacts, Early Members' Applications, Newsletters, Portraits, Presentations, and Videos.  This initial choice leads to a more-detailed search engine.
2)   Click on CATEGORY for the selection desired.  
3)  SEARCH TERM targets content found under All Listed Fields, Author, Birth Year, Call Number, Description, Maiden Name, Name, Surname, & Washington Territory arrival year.
4)  FOR could be any keyword or date of your choosing.
Example:  an All Listings search for All Listed Fields for “Yesler” will result in a photo of Henry Yesler, a painting of him, a print of his likeness, a sculpture of him, a photo and a video of his daughter, people affiliated with his mill, and various book or newsletter citations.
