The Archives Keyword Search allows you to perform a general search for Lancaster County’s historic government records (see list below). Keyword searches use OR as the default connector between words (e.g. a search for Frederick Hess will return records associated with Frederick OR Hess). If you want to find records where both keywords are found, type in AND between the two words. To search for a specific name, use last name, first name and put the phrase within quotes (e.g. “Hess, Frederick”). You can also use the asterisk (*) as a wildcard (e.g. a search for histor* would come up with records containing history, histories, historical, etc.). Searches are not case sensitive. Phrase searching and wildcards (*), as well as AND/OR statements are available when performing catalog searches. You may also search for spelling variations or multiple keywords, such as Meyers Myers.
