Online Collection

In 2013, we began the process of preparing our collection records for online access. By the end of that year, about 30% of our collection entries, including over 500 photographs, were available online. A grant received from Heritage 4Culture in 2014 allowed us to upgrade to PastPerfect 5.0, with an associated improved version of PastPerfect Online. At present over 90% of our collection records and images are available online. We invite you to check out the new online site and let us know what you think.

Tips for searching:

When you click the SEARCH NOW link on this page, you will connect to a screen with several search options and explanations for their use. Note that you may do a "drive through" by choosing RANDOM IMAGES.

Note that in this new version you may search or browse by catalog, so if you are most interested in photographs, go to the PHOTOS catalog. Click once on the small image shown to bring up the record information, then click again to go to a larger version of the image.

Special note on school photos:

We have large numbers of school photos. In some cases, no IDs were provided. In other cases we have long lists of students in the photos. Staff time was not available to enter all student names individually under PEOPLE, so we tried for each photo to determine the calculated graduation date to create a "Class of xxxx" designation and listed this under PEOPLE. If you use CLICK & SEARCH, PEOPLE, "C", you can scroll down to the list of classes to look for those of interest.

Please refer to example in the right hand column. In some cases, you will see a school photo image (#1 in example), a duplicate image with students numbered (#2 in example), and a list of IDs by number (#3 in example).

Use photos only by permission. Contact Fall City Historical Society for more information.
