Record Content[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

SEARCHING THE COLLECTION[edit | edit source]

To search by image:
⇒Select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page
⇒Select “Record type”
⇒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.
