Once you select a Stormy Petrel, an Internet Archive page will open, featuring the item. The important links for viewing the item are on the upper-left hand side of the page.

We recommend selecting “Read Online” (in the upper left-hand side of the page). If you select Read Online, you can “flip” the pages by clicking on them.

Each Stormy Petrel is full-text searchable (you can search by names, event, etc.). The search feature is not 100% accurate, however, so please also browse through the pages.
