Some items only have a partial date eg June 1989 or 1989. In this event, they will appear in more than one of the date ranges. For example, if an item has a partial date of June 1989, it will appear in the results set for each of the individual days in that month. If an item has a partial date of 1989 it will appear under any of the date ranges which include 1989.
Most items will just have a start date (ie the date they were created - such as the date a letter was written). However, some documents have been grouped and scanned together as one item. Where this occurs the item will have a start date (the date of the first document) and an end date (the date of the last document created in the group). Such an item will appear in each of the date ranges here that its own dates overlap. For example, if it has dates of 1 April 1989 - 30 April 1989 it will appear in each of the top three date ranges offered on this page.
