You might also try searching for "Ffestiniog" Heritagejim (talk) 15:20, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Quite so. Also "Ffustiniog", etc. FarleyBrook (talk) 23:18, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
When I was looking at the newspaper archives recently, I noted that it would allow a search of "F*stiniog" (in quotes). However, this brings up thousands of references to Blaenau Festiniog [sic] and Festiniog (wasn't called Llan at the time). However, it wouldn't accept a search for "F*stiniog Railway" (again in quotes). Frustrating. Tony E. (talk) 19:04, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
Most of matches of say "Fustiniog", etc., are scanning errors, which on NLA - Trove, at least, can be corrected; this means that next time, "Festiniog" will match that article. This also means that that article has one less flaw when you cut and paste it. Should the village of "Fustiniog" actually exist, in say Kent, NLA allows you to add a comment to that effect without having to alter the original article. Articles can also be "tagged", which maybe another name for "bookmark". FarleyBrook (talk) 04:35, 2 December 2015 (UTC)
