Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.


The Christmas holiday of 1956 saw 9-year-old Janis MacDermot (Hartman) and her sister Carol MacDermot opening similar gifts. Each girl received a Ginny Doll that year. The Vogue Doll Company's famous Ginny doll was very popular during that era. Various different companies have owned the Ginny doll line since then. Proud children and adults too often take holiday photographs in front of the tree.
