Quick search hints:
- Words separated by spaces are each searched for, ordered by relevance.
- Words surrounded by double quotes are searched as a phrase e.g: “Ngati Raukawa”
- Less exactly, “migration occupation”~5 will find migration and occupation within 5 words (in any order)
- Join terms using AND, OR, NOT (in capitals). Lowercase will search for the words themselves.
- Truncation/Wildcard symbols: “*” and “?” Eg: franc?s will find francis or frances. franc* will find france, francis, franchising, frantic, etc.
- To limit searches to particular fields in the MLCMBI collection only, use this syntax:
block: otaki where “block:” is the field name, and “otaki” is the area. Note the colon!
Other fields are: judge:, place:, kaikorero:, hapu: (includes iwi), and notes:
