A simple search can be done by selecting a single search method, typing the value you wish to search for in the text box and click search. The use of a Wildcard * (asterisk) in searching will increase your chances of retrieving matching documents.
When searching be sure you have "Astoria, City of" selected as Jurisdiction.
- "Title Word" will search any word in the Title field for a record- MOST RECOMMENDED! Use the wildcard * to increase your search success. For example, "Ord*" will return Ordinance, Ordinances, ORD, ordinary, order... etc.
- Searching by "Any Word" will search any word in either the Title field or the Notes field for a record.
- "Document Content" will search the entire document content. Expect a longer search time! Narrow search down by using key words.
- "Title (free text part)" is an exact match search of the Title field for a record. Not Recommended unless you have the exact title.
