Search lives: Person

The person component of the search lives page allows you to search for any writer or recipient of correspondence by any part of their name, including title, nickname and pseudonym or alias.

If you are unsure of the spelling of a person's name, you can substitute missing letters with a "*" wildcard character.

A note on names

Searching by name (or alias) searches all the metadata related to the correspondents' names: this will include nicknames, pseudonyms and all known titles, even when they are not detailed in the person's biographical note. As a consequence, the term you search for may not appear in the results, which show a standard form of the name. We are planning to provide a display of all known nicknames, titles and other aliases shortly.
