Use this page to combine Keyword, Person,
Place and Date searches. You can specify a particular
type of source, e.g. images and maps; limit your search to a particular
resource or resources; and/or select only material which is
free to access. For a short introduction to the key features of Connected Histories, see our
Use * for wildcards (e.g. ta*lor returns
taylor and tailor), but not at the start of a word; the more letters
you specify the better.
Multiple word searches function as either/or, with results with
both or all terms returned first. To search for
all the words in your query place a plus sign (+)
before each term; to exclude a particular term place a minus
sign (-) directly in front. To search for phrases
(exact strings, e.g. "Earl of Sandwich"), use double quotes, but this search
will ignore stopwords such as of.
e.g. Duke of Norfolk, Hannah Smith or John Walters
e.g. Benjamin or Sarah
e.g. Brooks or Williams
