Be aware that with either search you may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination. Keep in mind:
*There may be more than one person in the records with the same name
. *You may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name . *Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life . *If your ancestor used an alias or a nickname, be sure to check for those alternate names . *Even though these indexes are very accurate they may still contain inaccuracies, such as altered spellings, misinterpretations, and optical character recognition errors if the information was scanned .
