What you can do with the Location listings

The main list is initially sorted by first name(s), our Mal-ID reference number and then census date.
However, you can change the sort sequence by clicking on the column headings, alternating between ascending and descending order.

You can use the Search function at the top right of the table to shorten the list you are looking at.

The items displayed will change as soon as you start typing in that box.
Cancel the Search/Filter by clicking on the ‘x’ on the right hand side of the Search box.

The search is done on all columns of the table, on any part of any of the words and is not case sensitive.
For example, entering “LIZ” (or “liz”) would find rows that contain both Elizabeth and Lizzie.

You can enter more than one word (or part thereof) and the system will filter to show only those rows that contain BOTH words.
Continuing the example, entering “LIZ” and then “JON” as separate entries in the Search box would show only Lizzie Jones and the two Elizabeth Maliphants in Jonesboro, Indiana in 1900.

Entering the Mal-ID reference number as a search value would immediately reduce the list to only entries for that person.

If your search value(s) filter out ALL entries, the display will say “No matching records found”.

To select an entry, click on the link in the Type column to display the detail.
The Type itself carries a suffix denoting what type of record it is – the first letter of Census, Directory, Electoral (Roll) or Record (Private).

The detail page is self explanatory and contains a copy of the original Census form for you to view (click on the image to enlarge it).
Beside the address you will find a link to Google Maps to show you where the location is. Sometimes this is marked as “Approx” when the exact location is not known, others “Site of” where the area has been redeveloped.
Clicking on any of the names showing as being present at that time will show you a list of ALL Census reports for that individual, using the same format as the original big list.
