Search the MHS Website

Surround your search terms with quotes to search as a phrase.

All searches are case insensitive.

Search supports boolean operators AND, OR and NOT; when no boolean operators are used, search results will require all terms. Use of quotes for phrase searching cannot be combined with boolean operators.

Paul OR Revere will returns records that contain at least one of the terms.

Paul AND Revere will only returns records that contain both terms.

Paul AND Revere OR Longfellow will only returns records that contain both Paul and Revere, and will prioritize but not require records containing Longfellow.

Paul AND Revere NOT Longfellow will only returns records that contain both Paul and Revere, and do not contain Longfellow.
