 +
=== How Do I Analyze the Results? ===
 +
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 [[Use_Appropriate_Forms#Prepare_a_Research_Log |research log]].
  
== How to Use the Record  ==
+
== What Do I Do Next? ==
 
+
Whenever possible, view the original records to verify the information and to find additional information that might not be reported. These pieces of information can lead you to additional records and family members.          
==== Searching The Collection  ====

=== I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now? ===
 
+
*Add any new information to your records                 
To search the collection, <br> ⇒Select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page <br> ⇒Select “Town” <br> ⇒Select “Record Type and Years” which takes you to the images.  
+
*Use the age to find an approximate birth year to begin your search in church or civil records                   
 
+
*Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have moved, been recruited or lived nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify. Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual. This compiled list can help you identify possible relations that can be further verified by researching [https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/Germany_Vital_Records_Index_(FamilySearch_Historical_Records) vital records] in the country                   
Search the collection by image comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.
+
*When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details such as a title, an occupation, or land ownership. Add this new information to your records of each family. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors                  
 
+
*[[Germany Church Records|Church Records]] often were kept years before government records were required and are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900
In order to find data in this collection, it will be necessary to know at least the name of the ancestor, the place of the event, and an approximate date.  
+
===I Can't Find Who I'm Looking For, Now What?===                       
 
+
*Consult the [[Germany Record Finder]] to find other records
Some records have indexes at the end of the volume. Frequently, these indexes are arranged by the given name of the individual and sometimes use the Latin form of the name. Those volumes without indexes need to be searched chronologically for the individuals sought.
+
*Switch to a different record collection. Depending on the time period, either German Civil Registration records or German Church records may be more useful                           
 
+
*While searching, it is helpful to know such information as the ancestor’s given name and surname, some identifying information such as residence and age, and family relationships. Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as an ancestor and that the ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times                   
When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information about your ancestor and&nbsp;other people listed in the record. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors.
+
*Keep in mind that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name                 
 
+
*Standard spelling of names typically did not exist during the periods our ancestors lived in. Try variations of your ancestor’s name while searching the index or browsing through images. Pay special attention to how the name should have been pronounced and try variations on the pronunciation
For example:
+
*Search the indexes and records of [[Germany Societies|local genealogical societies]]
 
+
=== Research Helps ===
*Use the birth or baptism date and place to find the family in census records.
