How Do I Analyze the Results?[edit | edit source]

Compare each result from your search with what you know to determine if there is a match. This may require viewing multiple records or images. Keep track of your research in a research log.

What Do I Do Next?[edit | edit source]

When you have located your ancestor’s burial record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Burial records are often brief so it can be easy to confuse individuals. Compare what information is given with what you already know about your ancestor to make sure it is the correct person.

I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Add the new information to your records
  • Use the birth date or year to search for birth records
  • Use the birth date along with your relative’s names to find the family in census records
  • Compile the entries for every person with the same surname. This is especially helpful for rural areas or unusual surnames
  • Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the deceased who may have been buried in the same cemetery or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify

I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Look for variant spellings of the names. You should also look for alias names, nicknames and abbreviated names
  • Look for an index. Local genealogical and historical societies often have indexes to local records
  • Search the indexes and records of nearby cemeteries
