How to Use the Categories Search

Show or hide any category group by clicking on the red [+] or [-].

Select the option of either detailed display, or names only. Names only is implied when a gender or all names or a Zodiac category ONLY is selected. It is also implied when BUT NOT is used.

Choose AND or OR ...

Selecting AND means every selected category must apply. With AND, 'actor' with 'singer' selects those who are actors AND singers. This is known as 'filtering.'

Selecting OR means ANY of the selected categories may apply. With OR, 'actor' with 'singer' selects those who are actors, OR singers, OR both.

Then click one or more categories.

Some Special Cases

Some cases obviously cannot work together - for example, 'Female' AND 'moon' - at this time, no females have been to the moon. Also, the Zodiac Signs are mutually exclusive.

If no category is selected, ALL names in our data will be shown, without details.
