How Do I Analyze the Results?

Compare each result from your search with what you know to determine if there is a match. This may require viewing multiple records or images.

What Do I Do Next?

I Found Who I Was Looking For, What Now?

  • If possible, look at the actual image of the record to verify the information found in the online description.
  • 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 information to your records of each family. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors.
  • Cite the record entry for future reference. Save or print a copy of the image if possible. The image citation is available by clicking on the information tab at the bottom left of the screen where you found the actual image of your ancestor’s record.
  • Use the age to determine a birth year.
  • Use the estimated birth year and birthplace to locate the birth record.
  • Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the deceased who may have been buried in the same cemetery or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.

I Can’t Find Who I’m Looking For, What Now?

  • New information is constantly being indexed, microfilmed or updated. Periodically check back and 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 and notice the asterisk for recently added or updated records.
  • When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
  • The name of the undertaker or mortuary could lead you to funeral records, which often include the names and residences of other family members.

Citing This Collection

Proper citations make it easier to get back to sources that you have found, so citing sources properly can help you keep track of research. Correct citations also allow others to check completed research by giving them a way to find and examine records for themselves.

Collection Citation:

Argentina, Cemetery Records, 1823-2013. Images. FamilySearch. http://FamilySearch.org : accessed 2017. British Cemetery of Buenos Aires (Argentina).
The image citation will be available once the collection is published.
