=== How Do I Search the Collection?  ===
Look at each image or record comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine if the image relates to them. You may need to look at several images or records and compare the information about the individuals listed to your ancestors to make this determination. Keep in mind there may be more than one person in the records with the same name and you will want to look carefully at dates, places and relations to identify your ancestor from another person. You also may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name if they were known by a nickname or changed their name from the original birth record name. Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life and may be listed in records with any of those variations. For tips about searching on-line collections see the on-line article [[FamilySearch Search Tips and Tricks]].<br><br>

Before searching this collection, it is helpful to know:

=== How Do I Analyze the Results? ===
When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Make a photocopy of the record, or extract the genealogical information needed. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details. Add this new information to your records of each family. The information may also lead you to other records about your ancestors.

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.
 
+
== What Do I Do Next? ==
*Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have been born, married or died 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 [[Idaho Census|census records to find families listed together in households.<br><br>

*Use the age or estimated birth date to find vital records such as birth, marriage, and death
*Use the event date and ages of ancestors to search for [http://www.healthandwelfare.idaho.gov/Health/VitalRecordsandHealthStatistics/Birth,Death,Marriage,DivorceCertificates/tabid/82/Default.aspx  original birth, marriage, or death records] in the county of the event. The County Clerk has marriage records from 1854, probate, divorce, court and land records, birth records 1919-1988 (some from 1873) and death records 1905-1988 some from 1876. These records may have the maiden name of the mother, verify parents, and provide more clues to this family.<br><br>

*Use the information found in the record to find additional family members in census records
 
+
*Use the information found in the record to find probate records
*Search the [[Idaho Census]] records from this town/county/state to find this person as a child in the birth family and also as a parent in their adult family. Record names of family members listed, immigration dates, occupation, residence, birthplace, parents birthplace, and other information leading to more clues about your ancestor. <br><br>
+
*Use the information found in the record to find land and property records
 
+
*If applicable, search for immigration and naturalization records
*Use the locality and relative’s names to locate [[Idaho Land and Property]] records. These records often name close relatives and also give you more clues into the life of your ancestor.<br><br>

=== I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now? ===
 
+
*If your ancestor does not have a common name, collect entries for every person who has the same surname. This list can help you find possible relatives
*Find more detail about death or burial information by searching for [http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=csr&CScn=&CScntry=4&CSst=15&CScnty=0 cemeteries, grave markers],sexton's records, or a civil or religious death record. Look for an obituary in a local [[http://www.onlinenewspapers.com/usstate/usidaho.htm|newspaper archive]]. Sometimes a person is buried in a city or town in which they did not die. Do not assume that a burial place is the same as a death place. Look for death records in the place of death. The name of the undertaker or mortuary could lead you to funeral and cemetery records, which often include the names and residences of other family members. <br><br>

*If you cannot locate your ancestor in the locality in which you believe they lived, then try searching a nearby locality

*Try different spellings of your ancestor’s name
*[[Idaho Church Records|Church records]] often were kept years before government records were required and are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900. If the officiator of a marriage or death was a minister, you may be able to determine to which religion or congregation your ancestor belonged.
