What Do I Do Next?

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

  • Use the information you have found to find the couple in later census records
  • Use the father's names to find the bride and groom as children in earlier census or birth records
  • Use the age to calculate a birth date and to find other records such as birth, christening, census, land and death records
  • Use the information to find additional family members. Witnesses or bondsmen were usually relatives
  • Repeat this process with additional family members found, to find more generations of the family

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

  • If possible, look at an image of the original record. The original may contain information that was not recorded in the index
  • If you cannot locate your ancestor in the locality in which you believe they lived, then try searching records of a nearby locality in an area search
  • Standard spelling of names typically did not exist during the periods our ancestors lived in. Try variations of your ancestor’s name while searching the index or browsing through images
  • Remember that sometimes individuals went by middle names, nicknames, or abbreviation of their given name
