Well, once the archiving process is back up and running, JewishGen
posts are fully searchable by the actual content of the post. I guess
a hashtag might in some cases provide an additional bit of text to
search on, but as others have mentioned, hashtags were developed in
order to make searching of otherwise unindexed text (in social media)
possible. It's unlikely they would make much difference in our
context.
