When searching the records it is helpful to know the following:
 
 
 
*The place where the death occurred
 
*The name of the person at the time of death
 
*The approximate death date
 
 
 
==== Search the Collection  ====
 
 
 
Fill in the requested information in the initial search page. Look at the list of entries created by your search. Compare the information about the ancestors in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to find your ancestor.
 
 
 
==== Using the Information  ====
 
 
 
When you have located your ancestor’s death record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors. Add this new information to your records of each family.
 
 
 
For example:
 
 
 
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find or verify their birth records and parents' names.
 
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records.
 
*Use the residence and names of the parents (if the deceased is a child) to locate church and land records.
 
*Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
 
 
 
==== Tips to Keep in Mind  ====
 
 
 
*You may need to compare the information of more than one family or person to make this determination.
 
*The name of the officiator is a clue to their religion or area of residence in the county.
 
*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.
 
*Occupations listed can lead you to other types of records such as employment or military records.
 
*Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
 
*Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the deceased who may have died or been buried in the same county or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family or even the second marriage of a parent. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.
 
*When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
 
*The information in these records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant.
 
*Earlier records may not contain as much information as the records created after the late 1800s.
 
*There is also some variation in the information given from one record to another record.
 
 
 
If you are unable to find the ancestors you are looking for, try the following:
 
 
 
*Check for variant spellings of the surnames.
 
*Check for an index. There are often indexes at the beginning of each volume. Local historical and genealogical societies also often have indexes to local records.
 
*Search the indexes and records of nearby counties.

When you copy information from a record, you should list where you found the information. This will help you or others to find the record again. It is also good to keep track of records where you did not find information, including the names of the people you looked for in the records.
