Can I use Wildcards in a Search?

Yes. If you want to search for alternate spellings of a word or search for multiple words with the same base, or if you aren't sure of the correct spelling, you can use either a question mark or an asterisk.

  • Enter a question mark to perform a single character wildcard search. For example, type wom?n to search for records that contain the strings woman, women.
  • Enter an asterisk to perform a multiple character wildcard search. For example, type cultur* to search for records that contain strings, such as culture, cultural, and culturally.
