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

When you have located your ancestor in the census, compare the information in the census 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 of more than one family or person to make this determination. Carefully evaluate each piece of information about them. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors.

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

  • Use the age listed to determine an approximate birth date. This date along with the place of birth can help you find a birth record
  • It is often helpful to extract the information on all families with the same surname in the same general area. If the surname is uncommon, it is likely that those living in the same area were related
  • Married family members may have lived nearby but in a separate household so you may want to search an entire town, neighboring towns, or even an county

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
  • Search other records such as federal censuses, land, and probate
  • Search for vital records, such as birth, marriage, and death
