Start with simple queries like ‘phantassie’ or compound words like ‘ice houses’.
Use a plus sign to force the inclusion of a keyword ‘+rennie’ or a negative sign like “-houston” to exclude words.
To restrict results to a single website use:
meikle site:johngraycentre.orgnote the site: qualifier
To ensure you get only results with a specific qualifier:
ice houses intext:”East Lothian” site:eastlothianantiquarians.org.uknote the intext: qualifier has quotes
