== Collection Contents ==
 +
=== Coverage Table  ===
  
*"Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850: a Family Register for the People" by James Arnold
+
A Coverage table for this collection is available in the wiki article [[Mexico Marriages, Coverage Table (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]

+
==How Do I Search the Collection?==
 +
Before using this collection it is helpful to know:
 +
*Your ancestor's given name and surname
 +
*Identifying information such as residence
 +
*Estimated marriage or birth year
 +
=== Search the Index ===
 +
Search by name by visiting the [https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1473012 Collection Page]. <br>
 +
#Fill in the search boxes on the Collection Page with the information you have.<br>
 +
#Click '''Search''' to show possible matches.
 +
For more tips about searching on-line collections see the on-line article [[FamilySearch Search Tips and Tricks]].
  
*They were submitted by private individuals to the LDS Church and as such are part of the IGI resulting in their inclusion in this index.  
+
=== How Do I Analyze the Results? ===
*They have been indexed through the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church. If this is the case, the index they are a part of has been included as part of this database.
+
Compare each result from your search with what you know to determine if there is a match. This may require viewing multiple records or images.<br><br>
 +
== What Do I Do Next? ==
 +
=== I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now? ===
 +
*If possible, look at the actual image of the record to verify the information found in the online description.
 +
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in [https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1307314?collectionNameFilter=true Mexico 1930 census records].
 +
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate other church and land records.  
 +
*Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.  
 +
*Compile information for every person who has the same surname as your ancestor; 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 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.
  
The Vital Record Index databases are not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records although some sub-indexes (an index to a set of records within the database) have been found. When we identify a sub-index, we remove it from the database and post it separately on FamilySearch under its appropriate title.  
+
=== I Can’t Find The Person I’m Looking for, What Now? ===
 +
*Check for variants of given names, surnames, and place names. Transcription errors could occur in any handwritten record; also, it was not uncommon for an individual be listed under a nickname or an abbreviation of their name.
 +
*Civil registration records are also a good source of genealogical information.  You should obtain copies of both church records and civil registration, when possible, since they do not necessarily provide the same information. For example, baptismal registers sometimes provide the names of the fathers of illegitimate children when the civil registration does not.
 +
*There may be more than one person with the same name.  
 +
*Even though this is an index there may still be inaccuracies, such as altered spellings, misinterpretations, and optical character recognition errors if the information was scanned.
 +
*A boundary change could have occurred and the record of your ancestor is now in a neighboring area. Search the records and indexes of neighboring cities, provinces, and regions.
 +
*Your ancestor may have immigrated to another country. Search the records of nearby countries or immigration/emigration records.<br><br>
  
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing of this collection to help individuals find information about their ancestors.
