Never Limit Unless it is Beyond Absolutely Necessary

Unless a name is exceedingly common, I try and use as few search parameters as possible. A newspaper in Ohio can "pick up" and run an article from Kansas. can incorrect link an image from a 1938 military roster to a date of 1913, and a newspaper can run a "Days Beyond Recall" column in the 1950s that references an event in 1858.

Avoid limiting your searches with additional search terms unless the number of hits is simply to onerous to manage.
