== How Do I Search the Collection? ==
=== For Help Reading These Records ===
*[[Spanish Genealogical Word List]]
*Occupations listed can lead you to other types of records such as employment or military records.
*Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
*Compile information for every person who has the same surname as your ancestor; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
*Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives 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.
