Search Tip

Searching full-text primary documents from the 18th century can be a problem, either because of mistakes transforming the text to something machine-readable, or because 18th century spelling was not yet standarized.

To combat this, try combining several spellings of search words, such as:

smallpox  OR  smalpox  OR  small-pox

Also try truncation to get variations in spelling that have the same root:

adverti* to get advertize or advertise
