I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?Edit

  • Look at an image of the original record, if possible. The original may contain information that was not recorded in the index
  • Use the information to find other records such as marriage, death, or census records
  • Collect entries for every person who has the same surname, unless the surname is a common surname. This list can help you identify possible relatives that can be verified by records

I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now?Edit

  • Try viewing any original indexes to see if there were errors in the transcription of the name, age, residence, etc.
  • Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name
  • Remember that sometimes individuals went by nicknames, middles name, or an abbreviation of their given name
