I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?
- Use the information to find other records such as census, church, and land records
- Use the information to establish a migration pattern and find additional family members
- If a birthdate is not given, use the age to approximate a birth year and search for birth records
- Use the name of the spouse to find a marriage record
- Check to see if there are probate records available in the location and time period
I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now?
- Try viewing the original record to see if there were errors in the transcription of the name, age, residence, etc.
- Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name
- Collect entries for every person who has the same surname. This list can help you identify possible relations that can be verified by records
- If you cannot locate your ancestor in the locality in which you believe they lived, then try searching records of a nearby locality
- Standard spelling of names typically did not exist during the periods our ancestors lived in. Try variations of your ancestor’s name
- Remember that sometimes individuals went by nicknames, abbreviated names, or alternated between using first and middle names
- Your ancestor may have immigrated to another country. Search the records of nearby areas or Italy Emigration and Immigration records
- New information is constantly being indexed, microfilmed or updated. Periodically check back to see if your ancestor’s records have been added. You can see if the area you’ve been looking in has been recently updated by going to Historical Records Collections. Watch for an asterisk for recently added or updated records
