The Lucene search engine uses the hyphen in place of the NOT operator. I changed the text and examples to reflect this function.Tomhuber 06:31, 10 March 2010 (UTC)


The ? wild card does not work in the examples.


In #1 under Mixing Advanced Features, the "phrase search" needs a better example. It needs at least a two-word example.


In the section under Phrase Search, New York City and Family History Library have the same results, whether using double quotes or not. Use better examples.


The explanation of the OR operator does not seem to be entirely correct.  It states "This will search for articles that contain either "word1" or "word2," but not both words together on the same page."  However, if you do a search using the example of census OR tax the first article has both words in the same sentence.


Why is this article named Boolean Searches instead of Advanced Searches?  Most of the references to this article identify it as Advanced. sbfunk 18:22, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
