Search Tips

1. Enter multiple words to find pages with any of those words on them (e.g., Roselli Rosselli).
2. Put multiple words inside double-quotes to search for exact phrase (e.g., "single bullet theory").
3. Separate words or quoted phrases by AND to find only pages featuring both words or phrases (e.g., Khrushchev AND Castro). Make sure to use upper-case AND.
4. Searches are not case-sensitive (e.g., KENNEDY is the same as kennedy).
