Compare the information about the ancestors in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person.

What Do I Do Next?

When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors. Add this new information to your records of each family. Keep in mind:
