This search tool uses Google technologies to help find search terms inside the pdf volumes. It won’t get you to the exact page, however.
To retrieve transactions volumes with articles on e.g. ‘East Barns’ or the ‘Friendly Society of Free Gardeners’, or ‘Ice Houses’ in East Lothian you can use the following:-
filetype:pdf "free gardeners" or
filetype:pdf "ice houses" etc.
This will restrict the search to the PDF file type and the quotes will restrict the search to an exact match.
If nothing is found relax the search criteria, but if you find that you get too many results tighten them, by using quotes or qualifying your search with a negative sign e.g.
gilmerton -"walled garden"
