Interpreting the Horner index

Each card in the index contains the following information

Some handwritten annotations appear which detail the date and page and column reference for the Advertiser newspaper.

You can search for a person or a ship's name within the alphabetic sequence letter by letter. For instance, if you are looking for Samuel Keally, you would first open the "K" file. Then you would type "Keally" in the box labelled 'Find' or click on the binoculars on the left of the screen and type "Keally" in the box that appears.
