When searching digital collections of primary sources, try to use any search features that are relevant to your search and will help cut down the "clutter" that you have to sort through.
For instance, if you are researching a specific event, narrow the dates for your search.
If options are available to search only specific states or cities, use them (when they are applicable to your topic).
