Google Custom Search
NOTE: The Google Custom Search feature currently does cover all databases. We are working on fixing it. Some of the PDF databases listed below are searched, but not most of them. Feel free to try the search!  Thanks for your patience!
Many of our public databases listed below are searchable all at one time with this Google Custom Search feature.  Other pages of our website are also searched, including legacy Queries and issues of our newsletter The Gazette.

Databases
Our databases available on this website are listed in the following table, segregated by those freely available to the Public versus those available to current HCGS Members Only.  Most of our databases are indexes in the form of Adobe Acrobat PDF files, while some of the Members Only databases are in searchable MySQL database format.  The PDF files are searchable.  For example, once you have opended a file in the Google Chrome PDF viewer press Ctrl+F to open the search box.
 
The links in the table go to further detailed descriptions of the indexes with actual links to the indexes and descriptions of how to obtain copies of the original records the indexes refer to. 
 
Legend: "Abrv Index" stands for Abbreviated Index wherein enough information is given to show that a record exists in that collection but does not provide enough detail to enable retrieval of a copy of the the record from the original collection at the record repository.  "Full Index" on the other hand provides enough information to enable retrieval of a copy of the record from the original collection at the record repository.  "Alpha PDF Images" means alphabetized (and searchable) PDF images of the original records.
 
Memberships in HCGS start at $20/year and give access to the Members Only databases, as well as numerous other exclusive benefits.
