Wildcard Characters:

Given the prevalence of variant spellings in names, using Wildcard Characters may help.

"?" can be inserted as a variant for any single character.

"*" can be inserted as a variant for multiple characters or a truncated word.

Fuzzy Search Character

Appending the character "~" after a word returns results for words that are close but not exact matches.

Exact Phrase Searches

To find an exact phrase, it should be enclosed in double quotes.

Proximity Characters

To find two or more words which occur within a specified range of each other, one can append the character "~" followed by a number to an "Exact Phrase" search. This allows one to search for two or more words that occur within a specified distance of each other as defined by number of words.
