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

  • Add any new information to your records
  • Check the image the index was taken from to see if there is additional information
  • Make sure to fully transcribe and cite the record entry for future reference; see the section Citing This Collection for assistance. Save or print a copy of the image
  • Use the information to find more. For instance, use the age listed in the record to estimate a year of birth, if that is yet undetermined
  • If just the country is given, use the last name to search for your ancestor and his/her family in his/her home country; this is called a surname search and helps to pinpoint what cities/provinces/states were the hometowns of families
  • Use the last name to search for any possible relatives that may have traveled after or before your ancestor

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

  • These type-written records may have been transcribed from hand-written lists. So errors may be found in the spellings of names
  • Remember that your ancestor's name may be spelled according to the new country's native language or the language of your ancestor's home country
  • Clerks may have written/spelled the name of your ancestor as they heard it, not as it is spelled in your ancestor's native language. Learn about pronunciation of your ancestor's native language
  • The port your ancestor departed from may not be his/her hometown
  • If you think your ancestor may have immigrated to Brazil and you cannot find him/her in this collection, then check the records of other ports in Brazil. Information on these other ports can be found here, Brazil Emigration and Immigration
