Using search engines

Read the tips for searching. Every search engine you use on the internet is different so always read the instructions first. This will help you get the best results.

The following tips will help you when searching:

  • You can type either upper or lower case.
  • If you get too few or no matching records try entering fewer criteria and search again.
  • If you get too many matching records, try entering more criteria and search again.
  • You only need to type the first few letters of a word or text, eg. "hillv" will find "Hillview".
  • Normal searches look for the word at the beginning of a field, eg. "church" will find "Church of Christ"
  • Wildcard searches look for the word anywhere in a field but will take longer, eg. "%church" will find "Church of Christ" and also "St John's Church"
  • Speed your search by selecting options in key fields such as Local Government Area or Listings.
  • Your search can be restricted to fully described items by checking the Information complete only box.
