With this feature you have several options to search our database.

                The first search option is to leave all white boxes blank and click on search at the
                 bottom of the page.  This will list all data in our database alphabetically by
                 heading type (example - Alexandria City Court, Cash Sale, etc.)  When you reach
                 the bottom of each page, you can use the previous or next links to move backward
                 or forward.  You can also use the go to page feature by clicking on the down arrow
                 next to the page number and then click the go button.  The bottom menu bar will        
                 show which block of records you are view
ing out of the total records in the database.
                 When you have finished, you may click on the new search button found at the top
                 of the screen under the Search bar, or click on the Parish button under Your Editions.

                 The second search option is to search only for a particular type of data.  This can be
                 accomplished in two ways.
                     a        Click on the Search None (the Search All button will add check marks to all
                                of the data types and the Search none button removes all check marks)
                                button to clear all check marks.  Now check only the type(s) you which to view,
                                click search at bottom of screen.
                     b        The second option is to type what you are looking for in the Search For box
                                and then click the search button (example -  Typing the word
eviction and then
                                clicking search will show each eviction in the database).  This will also work
                                to locate a company or individual's name.  This type of search may return
                                unexpected results due to spelling variations.  When we list data, we use the
                                exact spelling we see in the original documents even when it is an obvious        

                    All of the above search types can also  be limited by date range.  To search for a
                    particular range, enter the beginning and ending dates either by typing the date        
                    (use this format  
mm/dd/yyyy) or by selecting the date from the two calendars.
