Search Tips -- Religious Groups

The following is a list of historical names intended to aid researchers in finding articles that mention specific Catholic religious groups. The brackets contain alternative names for a group, followed by the initials, if any, used by its members. By entering unique or very specific words, or combinations of words, into the Keyword search box (or the Advanced Search feature), researchers will retrieve any issues of The Indian Sentinel where those words appear. Note: Advanced Search may prove more useful than the Keyword search for finding specific religious groups.
