What else you can try:[edit source]

Code example 1:
If you wish to use your own links in this section, use the following:

{{GR Can't find|
  Number of search links=1| 
  Search link 1=|
  Search link 2=| 
  Search link 3=|   <!-- make sure not to include Location and Vital Type when sending separate links.
     .
     .
     .
 }}
Code example 2:
If you wish to use the predefined links in this section, only pass Location and Vital type:

{{GR Can't find|
  Location=Ohio|
  Vital type=Birth| 
}}

Template:GR Can't find - creates the section 'What else can you can try' on the GuidedResearch pages. If generic links are to be used for the 4 different links ('Additional Online Resources', 'Substitute records', 'Improve searching', 'Why the record may not exist'), then simply pass in the parameters 'Location' and 'Vital type'. Otherwise, pass in the detailed links to be used in 'Search link #'.
