== Strategies for Using an Authors Search ==
For example, if you want to find Jeremiah Smith, typing '''Smith''' in the "Last Name" field and nothing in the "First Name" field will give you a long results list. Typing '''Smith''' in the "Last Name" field and '''Jer*''' in the "First Name" field will give you a shorter list.
Or suppose you want to find St. John's Episcopal Church (Hampton, Virginia). Typing '''St. John’s''' will give you a long results list. Typing '''St. John's Hampton''' will give you a shorter list.
