Truncation Searching

Truncation searching allows you to retrieve records containing variations on a search term. To execute a truncation search, type the first few letters (stem) of the keyword followed by an asterisk (*).

This search would retrieve entries for all records containing the words: masse, massed, massenburg, massenet, massenets, masses, massey etc.

When executing a phrase truncation search, only the final word in the phrase can be truncated. For example, entering the search ter 'Sunday School*' in the Title Keyword search box would return all records containing the phrases 'Sunday Schools'; 'Sunday School Teachers'; 'Sunday School Lessons' etc. in the title.
