Use this type of search to alphabetically browse the index's list of subject headings, excluding proper names, which can be found using the other two search methods. Once you have found a particular subject heading that interests you, click on it to see the relevant page citations.
Within this type of search, there are four different ways to search the index using keywords:
- All of the words: This search will return subject headings that contain all of the keywords that you typed.
- Any of the words: This search will return subject headings that contain at least one of the keywords that you typed.
- Exact phrase: This search will return subject headings that contain, in exact word order, exactly what you typed. Do not surround what you type with "quotation marks".
- Advanced search: This search accepts keywords, linked by Boolean operators, such as "AND", "AND NOT", "OR", "OR NOT", and parentheses. If no parentheses are used in tandem with Boolean operators, "AND" is the default operator.
Example: Cutchogue AND NOT (church OR farm)
In anything other than an Exact phrase search, you may use the asterisk (*) symbol to truncate, up to five characters, a keyword. For example, typing "Bel*" will return "Belford", "Belton", "Bellport" and "Belle Terre", but not "Bellomont, Earl of".
All four searches may be limited to display only page citations containing images or correspondence. They may also be limited by year of publication.
The results may also be sorted, either by subject heading or chronologically.
Use this type of search to display all subject headings and page citations in the index from:
- Before a particular year
- After a particular year
- Between two years
Subject headings are followed by the publication year and page numbers of each article cited.
