What Do I Do Next?[edit | edit source]

I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • For death records, the information in records is usually reliable, but depends upon the knowledge of the informant
  • For marriage and death records, name changes, shortened names, or nicknames may have been used by your ancestors, so pay attention to other relationships (parents, spouse, siblings, children, etc.) that can confirm whether you have the right person/record
  • Witnesses were sometimes relatives of the deceased or the deceased's parents
  • When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct
  • Continue to search the marriage records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the bride and groom who may have married 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
  • Continue to search the indexes and records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have lived in the same area or a nearby area
  • The birth, marriage, and death records contain important information for at least two and sometimes three generations of ancestors in one document
