To see a coverage map of FamilySearch's holdings of Idaho marriages, click [http://user.xmission.com/~jsvare/FR/ID_FRM.html here].
 
 
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.
 
 
 
To begin your search it is helpful to know the following:
 
 
 
*The place where the event occurred
 
*The approximate date the event occurred
 
*The name of the individual or individuals such as the names of the bride and groom
 
 
 
'''Identify the record to be searched'''
 
 
 
From the Record Description list, identify the kind of record you would like to search (land or vital records) and click on the title link to select it.  
 
 
 
'''Find the image'''
 
 
 
Start searching individual images or pages that you have listed. Compare the information in the records to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct person. You may need to compare the information of 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. 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.

== How Do I Search the Collection? ==
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth of each partner to find a couple's birth records and parents' names.
+
Before searching this collection, it is helpful to know:
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records.
+
*The name of the person
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate church and land records.
+
*The location or date of the event
*Occupations listed can lead you to other types of records such as employment or military records.
 
*Use the parents’ birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
 
*The name of the officiator may be a clue to their religion or area of residence in the county.
 
*The name of the undertaker, mortuary, or cemetery could lead you to funeral and cemetery records which often include the names and residences of other family members.
 
*Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname. This is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
 
*Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have been born, married, or died in the same county or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family or even the second marriage of a parent. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.
 
*When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.

=== How Do I Analyze the Results? ===
*Earlier records may not contain as much information as the records created after the late 1800s.

If you are unable to find the ancestors you are looking for, try the following:
 
  
*Check for variant spellings of the surnames.
 
*Check for an index. There are often indexes at the beginning of each volume.
 
*Search the indexes and records of nearby counties.
