How to Use the Record

To begin your search, it would be helpful to know the following:

  • Date of the event
  • Place of the event

Search the Collection

To search the collection you will need to follow this series of links:
⇒Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page
⇒Select the "County" category
⇒Select the "Record Type, Date Range and Volume" category which takes you to the images

Look at the images one by one 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.

Using the Information

When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Make a photocopy of the record, or extract the genealogical information needed. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details. Add this new information to your records of each family. The information may also lead you to other records about your ancestors. The following examples show ways you can use the information:

  • Use the names and relationships as a basis for compiling family groups.
  • Use the names, date, and residence or place to locate the individual or family in the census.
  • Use the names and places to locate additional records about the individual or family such as church and land records.
  • Use ages listed to determine approximate birth dates.

Tips to Keep in Mind

  • You may need to compare the information of more than one family or person to make this determination.
  • If the record is a death record look for burial and probate records in the same location.
  • If the record is a birth record look for records of the parents.

Unable to Find Your Ancestor?

  • Check for variant spellings of the names.
  • Search the records of neighboring counties.
  • Search for an index. Local historical and genealogical societies often have indexes to local records.
