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.
Griffith is the fascinating city in western New South Wales that became famous for its irrigation framing, Italian culture, drug scandal and wineries. This book traces Griffith's heritage from its earliest inhabitants, through the era of pastoral settlement, to irrigation and the agricultural and commercial pursuits of today.
In Griffith Heritage, local people tell their own stories of Griffith's progress from the mayhem days of "Bagtown", the early 20th century construction camp, to a thriving, stable, multi-cultural and prosperous community.
A separate section of the book provides a useful "how-to-do-it" example of a community based heritage study. Local people, helped by a co-coordinator, contributed many hours of work and research, to identify places of heritage significance in Griffith. The heritage study, thematic history and recommendations that were presented to Griffith City Council are summarized in this section.
