Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as your ancestor and that your ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times.

Tips to Keep in Mind[edit | edit source]

  • When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
  • Use non-vital information (such as titles, occupations, or income) to learn who your ancestors were in their community.
  • Be aware that transcription errors may occur; the information is only as accurate as the person who recorded it. While information is usually accurate, you may find conflicting information in other records.
  • Search the records of nearby localities (or military unties, counties, parishes, etc.).
