  • Whenever possible, view the original records to verify the information and to find additional information that might not be reported. These pieces of information can lead you to additional records and family members
  • Print or download a copy of the record, or extract the genealogical information needed
  • Use the person's name and place of birth to find a birth certificate which should list the names of the parents
  • Use the country of citizenship to lead you to immigration or naturalization records
  • Use the person’s age and residence to find the family in census, church, and land records
  • When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct
  • Census, military service, military pension, immigration, naturalization, and land records can be very useful

I Can't Find Who I'm Looking For, What Now?Edit

  • Look for variant spellings of the names. Pay special attention to how the name should have been pronounced and try variations on the pronunciation
