As we build up archives, we will examine the possibility of a search engine, resources permitting; In the meantime we have tried to use basic HTML to be as helpful as possible. We are splitting our archives into three sections, set up by story and date, Personalities and Organisations.
1): If you are looking for an item about an individual before the current file either use the 'personalities' index at the head of a month's archive or go to the Personalities Archive
2): If you are looking for an item about an organisation before the current file go to the Organisations Archive
3): If you are browsing stories in general this page has links below to quarterly story summaries (with links onward in them to the full items) and also of full months' archives within which most items themselves will have links to previous items on the same or linked topics.
4). In addition story summaries will be kept ( directly below) of story summaries for the most recent three months.

We hope the combination of the above used with the 'Find' in a page (CTRL plus F )facility under 'Edit' in the main browsers will enable you to search reasonably swiftly.
