=== 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.
  
*Use the age to calculate the birth date.
+
For more tips about searching on-line collections see the on-line article [[FamilySearch Search Tips and Tricks]].
*Use the birth date or age along with the residence or place of birth of each partner to find a couple's birth records and parents' names.
 
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records.
 
*Use the residence and names to locate church and land records.
 
*Occupations listed can lead you to other types of records such as employment records 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.
 
  
Keep in mind:
