<br> Begin your search by finding your ancestors in the census index. Use the locator information in the index (such as page number or family number) to locate your ancestors in the census. Compare the information in the census to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to compare the information of more than one family or person to make this determination. Be aware that as with any index, transcription errors may occur.  
+
=== How Do I Analyze the Results? ===
 +
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.  
  
When you have located your ancestor in the census, carefully evaluate each piece of information about them. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors. For example:
 
  
*Use the age listed to determine an approximate birth date. This date along with the place of birth can help you find a birth record. Birth records often list biographical and marital details about the parents and close relatives other than the immediate family.  
+

*Birth places can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family.
 
*Use the race information to find records related to that ethnicity such as records of the Freedman’s Bureau or Indian censuses.
 
*Use the naturalization information to find their naturalization papers in the county court records. It can also help you locate immigration records such as a passenger list which would usually be kept records at the port of entry into the United States.
 
*If they are subject to military service they may have military files in the State or National Archives.
 
*Occupations listed can lead you to employment records or other types of records such as school records; children’s occupations are often listed as “at school.
 
  
It is often helpful to extract the information on all families with the same surname in the same general area. If the surname is uncommon, it is likely that those living in the same area were related.

Be sure to extract all families before you look at other records. The relationships given will help you to organize family groups. The family groupings will help you identify related families when you discover additional information in other records.
+
=== I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now? ===
 
+
*If your ancestor does not have a common name, collect entries for every person who has the same surname. This list can help you find possible relatives.
Some other helpful tips to keep in mind are:
+
*If you cannot locate your ancestor in the locality in which you believe they lived, then try searching records of a nearby town or county.  
 
+
*Try different spellings of your ancestor’s name.
*Married family members may have lived nearby but in a separate household so you may want to search an entire town, neighboring towns, or even an county.  
+
*Remember that sometimes individuals went by [http://usgenweb.org/research/nicknames.html nicknames] or alternated between using first and middle names. Try searching for [http://genealogy.about.com/od/first_names/fl/nickname-given-name-equivalents.htm these names] as well.
*You may be able to identify an earlier generation if elderly parents were living with or close by a married child.  
+
*Check the info box above for additional FamilySearch websites and related websites that may assist you in finding similar records.
*You may be able to identify a younger generation if a young married couple still lived with one of their sets of parents.  
 
*Additional searches may be needed to locate all members of a particular family in the census.
 
 
 
You should also be aware that the census may identify persons for whom other records do not exist.
