In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
The memory of the Clarke Gang has been defamed since the 1860s with accusations of murder and many robberies. This book will show that whilst we cannot say who committed the murders they ahve been accused of, it can be shown, in each case, that it is unlikely that they were the guilty offenders.
They never faced trial for murder. There just was not enough evidence for conviction. Unless there is a conviction in a court of law, accustaions of murder are erroneous. Similarly they were never brought to trial for many of the robberies that have been attributed to them, this again means that these accusations are in many instances erroneous in nature.
Other authors have not considered the cultures of the two main groups - the Protestant English and the Catholic Irish. A knowledge of these cultures is nescessary for a better understanding of the events of the 1860s in Braidwood.
