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'.

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.
Historian Charles Bean described the Leanes as 'the most famous family of soldiers in Australian military history', and they were used as a poster family for recruitment in the First World War.
But these Aussie diggers were separated by only one generation from humble Cornish farmers, who sought godliness not glory when they sailed to Australia in 1852.
When Wendy Frew opened the genealogy cupboard to learn more about her martial ancestors, out fell a bunch of fiery evangelists and women's suffragists who embraced all the opportunities on offer in the new colony of South Australia.
Frew places her family at the crosscurrents of history - mass migration, colonisation and war - and reveals a complex true story that will resonate with the descendants of Australia's early free settlers.
'Leane Times' is a vivid account of personal courage, triumph and tragedy.
