Search Tips

Look for an Exact Phrase

  • Use quotation marks to look for a phrase, name, or concept.
  • For example, if you enter: “Cunard Line” our system will search for the exact phrase “Cunard Line.”
  • The same would be true if you enter: SS Lurline, liner, cruise ship, first-class, passenger lists, liners, steamships, hotels, RMS Queen Mary, SS France, RMS Titanic, Panama Limited, gambling ships, mid-century, etc.

Using And

  • Use the word “and” to refine your search.
  • For example, if you’re looking for articles about the Pullman Company and the Santa Fe Railroad, use the following search… Pullman and Santa Fe – which will retrieve articles containing the word Pullman and Santa Fe.
  • By contrast, entering “Pullman” alone would retrieve articles about the Pullman Company, Pullman trains, etc.
