How Do I Search This Collection?[edit | edit source]

Before searching this collection, it is helpful to know:

  • The name of your ancestor.
  • The approximate year of death.
  • The place were the death occurred.
  • The possible cemetery of burial.

Search the Index[edit | edit source]

Search by name on the Collection Details Page.
  1. Fill in the search boxes in the Search Collection section with the information you know
  2. Click Search to show possible matches

How Do I Analyze the Results?[edit | edit source]

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. Keep track of your research in a research log.

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

When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Download a copy 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.

I Found Who I'm Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Add any new information to your records
  • Use the burial information to locate a birth record
  • Use the burial information to locate a death record
  • Use the burial information to search other records about your ancestor in the same locality
  • Continue to search the cemetery abstracts identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have been buried in the same cemetery, or surrounding cemeteries
  • If your ancestor used multiple names throughout their life, look for all their names

I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Look for variant spellings of the names. You should also look for nicknames and abbreviated names
  • Look for another index. Local genealogical and historical societies often have indexes to local records
  • Search the indexes and records of nearby counties
  • Try alternative search methods such as only filling in the surname search box (or the given name search box) on the landing page leaving the other box empty and then click on search. This should return a list of everyone with that particular name
  • You could then browse the list for individuals that may be your ancestor
