Can I search all my files simultaneously?

Your Hunters Frontier Times Magazine flash drive is formatted to function with Adobe Reader or any PDF reader program.

With the free Adobe Reader PDF program you simply choose Advanced search and then point the search to the directory were your flash drive files are located, either as a drive itself (for example E Drive or F Drive), or on another drive on your computer where you may have saved your files. It is important to remember that all 352 PDF files must be located on the same drive in order to simultaneously search all files at once.

Then using Adobe Reader Advanced search features you can search your flash drive using word search, phrase search, Boolean search criteria or any other number of ways.

One of the most effective ways to search especially if you are researching common surnames such as Clark, Davis, Johnson etc., is to use “Proximity search”. With proximity search you can enter a surname such as Johnson and then set the criteria for proximity as (for example) 20 and then type a second term such as Denton or Denton County, San Saba or San Saba County, Llano County, etc. The results will conclude all citations of the surname “Johnson” that occur within 20 words of the proximity search term such as the place Denton, etc. That way, you can determine if the “surname” you are researching may have lived in a particular area, participated in a particular event, etc.

You can also use proximities search to link dates or events. If, for example, I wanted to determine if Texas Ranger captain June Peak had participated in a particular battle I could associate the term “June Peak” in proximity range within 20 words, 10 words or whatever the case may be with the event name, for example, “Adobe Walls” or some other event or date.

We hope that this information helps in your research. It is our goal for your flash drive to be a very powerful resource tool for researching your Texas history names dates places and events. Do not hesitate to email us with any further questions you may have.
