This may be for one of several reasons. What follows are some suggestions to tweak your search. If this doesn't work, then it is likely we have no related records in the database. We may have what you are looking for at the Archives, so please contact us.
Examine the contents of the search screen to ensure that there are no criteria left over from previous searches.
If you are unsure of the correct spelling of your search term, use an asterisk after the first few characters (eg. colo*) or separate different spelling with the Boolean operator OR symbol (eg.colour / color).
If you performed a complex search, try simplifying it. Use the browse option to see available search terms and paste them into your search.
If you are trying to find records that contain multiple words anywhere in the record, separate the words with Boolean symbols &, /, and !. Otherwise, you are doing a phrase search, which finds these words in that order.
If your search includes Boolean symbols, ensure that you use the appropriate symbols, not the words AND, OR, or NOT, and put spaces around them (eg. County & Simcoe notCounty&Simcoe).
