Thanks for joining us, and for also giving us feedback on our website.

I assume that you are talking about the searchable index for the scanned 
maps at


You are correct that this link is public, and yes, I noticed also that 
it no longer works- seems to have broken when we recently moved the 
server from Washington State to California.  We are in the process of 
getting it fixed.   This index is, however, only for our scanned maps, 
and is does not include the maps in the members only section.

So far as searching the gazetteers, there is no search engine per se, 
but in every browser you can use the "find" feature under once of the 
menu tabs in that browser to search for all occurrences of any letter 
combination on the web page (gazetteer) that is open.

We look forward to hearing of your successes when you can get into the 
members only areas of the website.

My name is Teresa Loeffler, and I'm trying to trace my dad's side of the family.  I've been playing around on the website, and have found some interesting things, but I've run into a  puzzle in the maps section.

Every time I try the Search I get a blank white page as my result.  I've gotten the same result in Explorer and Chrome.  I used Lodz as one of my tries, so I know I should have gotten something.  Has anyone else used this feature?  Have you gotten better results?
