Indexes are filed under set-out names.  Set-out names are common names such as Smith, Jones, Jonas, Dellinger, etc.  Businesses, firms, corporations, banks, churches, schools, etc. are also indexed under set-out names.  If you are unable to locate a specific name, (set-out name) then search for the type of business
you’re looking for.  Example Banks, Schools, Churches, etc.  You do this by searching firm search using only the first letter of the type business you’re looking for. Once you’ve entered the search, the index page for the selected date range you are searching will open. It is possible there may be a second page for the set-out name so be sure to use the orange arrows provided to forward to the next page or to go back a page.
