Look at each image or record comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine if the image relates to them. You may need to look at several images or records and compare the information about the individuals listed to your ancestors to make this determination. Keep in mind there may be more than one person in the records with the same name and you will want to look carefully at dates, places and relations to identify your ancestor from another person. You also may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name if they were known by a nickname or changed their name from the original birth record name. Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life and may be listed in records with any of those variations. To search the collection fill in the requested information in the boxes on the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the individuals in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to look at the information on several individuals comparing the information about them to your ancestors to make this determination. ===I Found Who I was Looking for, Now What?=== *Use the age in the citizen to find an approximate birth year to begin your search in church or civil records. *Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have moved, been recruited or lived nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify. Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual. This compiled list can help you identify possible relations that can be further verified by researching [https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/Germany_Vital_Records_Index_(FamilySearch_Historical_Records) vital records] in the country. *When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details such as a title, an occupation, or land ownership. Add this new information to your records of each family. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors. *[[Germany Church Records|Church Records]] often were kept years before government records were required and are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900. ===I Can't Find Who I'm Looking for, Now What?=== *Switch to a different record collection. Depending on the time period, either German Civil Registration records or German Church records may be more useful. *While searching, it is helpful to know such information as the ancestor’s given name and surname, some identifying information such as residence and age, and family relationships. Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as an ancestor and that the ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times. *Keep in mind that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name. *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. Pay special attention to how the name should have been pronounced and try variations on the pronunciation. *Remember that sometimes individuals went by [http://usgenweb.org/research/nicknames.shtml nicknames] or alternated between using first and middle names. Try searching for [http://genealogy.about.com/od/first_names/fl/nickname-given-name-equivalents.htm these names] as well. *Search the indexes and records of [[Germany Societies|local genealogical societies]]. == Citations for This Collection == Citing your sources makes it easy for others to find and evaluate the records you used.

These records are in German.   These records are written in [[German Language and Languages|German]]. {{Collection_Browse_Link|CID=CID2015585|title=Germany, Bavaria, Passau, Miscellaneous City Records, 1700-1940 }} == Record Content == {{Incomplete Image Translations}} <gallery widths="160px" heights="120px" perrow="3">Image:Germany, Bavaria, Passau, Miscellaneous City Records - DB (12-0206) Christenings DGS 5472019_67.jpg|ChristeningsImage:Germany, Bavaria, Passau, Miscellaneous City Records - DB (12-0206) Marriages DGS 5472019_759.jpg|MarriagesImage:Germany, Bavaria, Passau, Miscellaneous City Records - DB (12-0206) Deaths DGS 5472020_529.jpg|Deaths</gallery>  '''Records''' usually contain the following information:  *Names of parents, children, witnesses *Dates and places of events, ages *Residence and religion of principals *Occupation of principal person and maybe of other people listed depending on the record *Legitimacy == How to Use the Record == ==== SEARCHING THE COLLECTION ===='''To search by image:'''<br>⇒Select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page <br> ⇒Select “Record type” <br> ⇒Select “Name range or Event type” which takes you to the images.  Search the collection by image comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.  In order to find data in this collection, it will be necessary to know at least the name of the ancestor, the place of the event, and an approximate date.  Some records have indexes at the end of the volume. Frequently, these indexes are arranged by the given name of the individual and sometimes use the Latin form of the name. Those volumes without indexes need to be searched chronologically for the individuals sought.  When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information about other people listed in the record. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors.  '''For example:'''  *Use the birth or baptism date and place to find the family in census records. *Use the residence and names of the parents to locate civil and land records. *The father’s occupation can lead you to employment records, military records, or other types of records. *The parents' places of origin can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family. *Marriage date and place may help find a couple's children. *Burial place may also help you find a couple's migration pattern. It is often helpful to extract the information on all children with the same parents. If the surname is unusual, you may want to compile baptism entries for every person of the same surname and sort them into families based on the names of the parents. Continue to search the baptism records to identify siblings, parents, and other relatives in the same or other generations who were born, married, and died in or near to the same place. ==== For Help Reading These Records ==== These records are in German.
