Early American Imprints: advanced searching

To improve results, follow these tips:

1) Replace all "s" in your search terms with a "?"



In 17th and 18th century publications, the "s" was sometimes represented by a character similar to an "f".

Because of technology limitations, Early American Imprints treats these "s" as "f'.

In the example above, search for Loui?iana

In the following example, search for de?erter (to find "deserter")

2) Use ? to replace one character, use * to replace several characters

"indenture?" will search for "indenture" and "indentured"
"unemploy*" will search for "unemployed", "unemployment"
