Leave off word endings, especially plurals. The search word "sketch" will find "sketch," "sketches,"
"sketchbook," "sketchbooks," and "sketching."
Partial words, however, are only matched to the beginning of words. The word "ketch" will find the
community of "Corner Ketch" but not "sketch."
Search for compound words two ways -- "dupont" and "du pont"; "ship building" and "shipbuilding."
Do not use punctuation such as the possessive apostrophe, the hyphen between words, or quotation marks.
If you get too many pages listed, enter additional search words. For example, if you get too many
pages for "weslager" and are only interested in one of his books, add a word from the title to the search
words. For example, search for "weslager river" for C.A. Weslager's Delaware's Forgotten River.
Remember that words like "Delaware," "books," "copyright," and "Reid" are found on every page.
Don't use them in searches.
Numbers such as the year "1776" can be found by the search.
If a page is listed and you can't find your search word on it. Use your Web browser's search function
to find it. This is usually activated by pressing Ctrl-F.
