The Limit By tab on the Search form allows searches to be restricted to parts of the text of Great Domesday. Options are:

Counties: any, all, or any combination of counties may be selected.
Circuits: any, all, or any combination of circuits may be selected.
Types of text: any, all, or any combination of certain types of text may be selected.

To apply a limit, first specify the search, then select the limitation required. Note that when checking results, the statistics will reflect the global search except at the top level which records the number of hits.
