How to Use the Record

This collection is considered a secondary source, but the information can lead you to other primary records. Compare the information in the records to what you already know to make sure that you have the correct family or individual. Add any new information to existing records about your family.

You may find the following suggestions helpful:

  • Use the names, dates, and places as the basis for family groups or to build a family pedigree.
  • Use the dates along with places or residences to help you locate the family in other records such as census, church, and land records.
  • Burial information may lead you to mortuary or funeral records, which could include names and addresses of family members. Be aware that many mortuary and funeral records did not survive the earthquake and fire in 1906.
  • Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname.
  • 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.
  • When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
  • If you are unable to find the ancestors you are looking for, check for variant spellings of the surnames.

Record History
