What Do I Do Next?

I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now?

  • Look at an image of the original record. The original may contain information that was not recorded in the index.
  • Search earlier census records to locate the family in Canada.
  • Search other records in the province or parish where the family lived to learn more about them.

I Can’t Find Who 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 can help you find possible relatives.
  • Search the records of nearby areas. (Add this phrase when you are sure that people crossed boundaries to record events. Do not send someone to another country. Don’t waste their time).
  • Check for other names. An individual might appear under an unexpected name for a variety of reasons:
- They might have been listed under a middle name, nickname, or abbreviation of their given name.
-A woman may have returned to her maiden name after the death of her husband.
