Search Tips:

Searches are not case sensitive
Valid operators are:  AND   OR   ANDNOT. Using AND means both words appear in the file. Using OR means either word appears in the file. Using ANDNOT means you can eliminate words e.g. John ANDNOT James
Right truncation is supported using the asterisk * as wildcard e.g. Richard* finds files with Richard, Richards, Richardson etc
Search for phrases by enclosing search terms in quotation marks. e.g. "John Smith" finds files with the words beside each other.
Use parentheses to remove ambiguity from search expressions. Otherwise, operators execute from left to right. e.g. Smith AND (deed* OR indenture*) This search expression finds files containing Smith and either deed, deeds, indenture, or indentures.
