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

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

  • Add any new information to your records
  • Use the marriage date and place as the basis for compiling a new family group or for verifying existing information
  • Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth of each partner to find a couple's birth records and parents' names
  • Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records.
  • Use the residence and names of the parents to locate church and land records
  • Occupations listed can lead you to other types of records such as employment or military records
  • Use the parents' birthplaces to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family
  • The name of the officiator is a clue to their religion or area of residence in the county. However, ministers may have reported marriages performed in other counties
  • Compile the marriage entries for every person who has the same surname as the bride or groom; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual
  • Continue to search the marriage records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the bride and groom who may have married in the same county or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family or even the second marriage of a parent. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify
  • Use the marriage number to identify previous marriages
  • When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct

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

  • Check for variants of given names, surnames, and place names. Transcription errors could occur in any handwritten record; also, it was not uncommon for an individual to be listed under a nickname or an abbreviation of their name. Click here for a list of Spanish name abbreviations
  • Check for a different index. There are often indexes at the beginning of each volume
  • Search the indexes and records of nearby localities
  • A boundary change could have occurred and the record of your ancestor is now in a neighboring region.
  • Your ancestor may have immigrated to another country. Search the records of nearby areas or immigration/emigration records
  • Church records are also a good substitute when birth, marriage, and death records can’t be found or are unavailable
