The Keyword Search button allows you to perform a general search of any online records. Keyword searches use OR as the default connector between words (e.g. a search for Civil War will return records associated with Civil OR War). If you want to find records where both keywords are found, type in AND between the two words. To search for a specific phrase, be sure to put the phrase within quotes (e.g. "Civil War Musician"). You can also use the asterisk (*) as a wildcard (e.g. a search for histor* would come up with records containing history, histories, historical, etc.). Searches are not case sensitive.
