Wednesday, February 04, 2004 - FAQ from the Editor's Mailbag: "Try wildcards. now allows for wildcard searches. This simple tool allows researchers to insert an asterisk (*) or a question mark (?) in place of letters in a name.

Rules for the use of wildcards at
1. An asterisk (*) represents zero to six characters, i.e., A Search for john* might return john, johnson, johnsen, johnathon, johns, etc.
2. More than six characters is represented by a double asterisk (**), i.e., Wil** would find both Wills and Williamson.
3. Any use of the asterisk requires at least the first three letters of a name (i.e., it won't allow searches for Ad*, but could use Ada*.)
4. A single character is represented by question mark '?' and does not require the three-letter minimum (i.e., Sm?th equals both Smith and Smyth.)

Your ancestors were invisible. Just kidding! The truth is though, that sometimes people were missed in indexes, directories, censuses, etc. But you should always go through and try a manual search of the original record wherever possible before throwing in the towel. In some cases, such as in databases that are accompanied with images, you may be able to browse through the records online and locate your ancestor no matter how bad the name was butchered by the enumerator, compiler, or indexer.

There are more search tips available in the Library here. " - Tips for Online Research - FAQ from the Editor's Mailbag: "Prior to the opening of Ellis Island, immigrant processing was the responsibility of the state, and before 1855, there was no official center. In 1855, the State of New York began processing immigrants through the facilities at Castle Garden (previously known as Castle Clinton) in response to a massive influx of immigrants"
