Jeff, Thank you for your reply and for the suggestion, I will try the advanced search.
Since you are the archivist involved with the NARA Eastern Cherokee Applications collection going back to 2010, I assume you can provide some insight regarding the change to the titles.
Obviously there's a reason the entire collection was changed, but it's counterintuitive to alter the catalog in a way that makes it more difficult to find material.
Also, I am positive that researchers would be grateful to have a forum attached to the collection! Native American research is notoriously difficult so a forum would be a valuable addition.
Regards,
Martha

best is i can say is that it was a design decision that is not yet in its final form.
