Searching for files
It is possible to search for terms contained in archive references, topics, or supplicant names and/or for inclusive dates. If more than one search term is used, all used terms are catenated logically with AND.
Enter at least two characters into the search field labeled "search for" to get a list of matching terms. Enter ** to get a full list of searchable terms.
Search terms can be truncated. Use * to truncate any number of characters or ? to search for exactly one character. If you do not use truncating, the search term must exactly match the entry in the database field. You are allowed to use any number of truncation signs anywhere within the search term.
To restrict searches to a specific inclusive date, enter the years or use the slider.
If your search comprises the maximum inclusion dates (1576-1612) you are able include or exclude undated files by checking or unchecking the checkbox labeled "show undated files". In all other cases this option does not make sense and is therefore disabled.
