How to use the AJHS Advanced Search

Generic Filters:

By default “exact match” is not selected, as this limits results to where words appear beside one another. In the case of searching databases, where for example a first and last name appear in different columns, an exact match will not return a result as it looks per cell.

The remaining options are self-explanatory

Search Type:

The Advanced Search has a number of different areas of the website it will search through:

Archives – includes the content from all AJHS Journals & AJHS Newsletters (Default search option)
Databases – all the spreadsheet style lists on the site, e.g. Marriages
Products – for sale publications
Pages – content on the web pages themselves
Posts – content from any article excluding those in the archives.

Filter by Category:

You can select/deselect categories within search types.


The results of a search will show the most recent relevant entries first. Please note, the abstract shown is a summary of the article or database, so will not necessarily the contain your search words.
