This table explains where particular resources are to be found,
by reference to their "Media" value, in the sixth column ("F") of the Index.

Resources are filed depending on the media on which they reside, not their subject matter — as far as practicable in alpha order of Ref-ID.
ñ:  Our Newsletters are NOT stored in the Help Centre, but are emailed (or exceptionally posted) to every paid-up Member.
Maps  (& similar Snape Archive items) that are flat are in the map-chest, others are on a wide variety of media, incl. some as digital resources (PC).
Photos  can be any Media variant of book / booklet / paper, as card❋ or as PC (digital files) — but not "Photo" or "Photos", which are Categories.
Drawers  are numbered top to bottom in the four-drawer filing-cabinet (1 to 4), then in the three-drawer cabinet (5 to 7).
Media suffixes of letters B(ottom), Hanging, Left, Middle, Right and Top — defined below for "book"/"booklet" — are common to other resources too.
Other suffixes:   (apple), (asterisk) and ¥ (yen-currency symbol) below are explained in the notes at the foot of the table.

= Usually, only the "Family Tree" CDs dated March 2008 or later are also Mac-compatible, indicated as Media "CD FT " (that is, with an apple).

        CDs don't have our PROPERTY-OF labels.  Instead, in the Index, Ref-IDs' first two digits are the issue-year (so identify the relevant CD-wallet),  
        and 3rd digit represents 1=January to 9=September, U=October/Autumn, V=November, W=December/Winter, X=Xmas, Y=year-only shown.
        A very few other (that is, not "Family Tree") CDs are also MAC-compatible (Media="CD "): these are simply filed in drawer 6 with the assorted CDs.
        However, in all cases where Mac-compatability is suggested, CD operation may not be fully optimised (such as with indexed searching).

 ❋ AVSFHG CARDS ETC , to protect them from damage — index-entries for these items have an asterisk against "Media"-type. stored in drawer 2
¥ = Booklets and folded maps filed in the ¥ellow-lidded plastic box, in alpha-order: entries have yen-symbol against "Media". stored in drawer 6
