How to Use the Record
To begin your search, it is helpful to know the name of your ancestor and some other identifying information such as their age.
Search the Collection
To search the collection by image:
⇒Select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page
⇒Select the appropriate "Record Type, Year Range, and Volume Number" which takes you to the images.
It is best to start with the indexes, as they usually have information such as volume, year, or page number that will help you to quickly locate the record for your ancestor.
If you do not find your ancestor in the index, you will need to look at the images one by one, comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine if the image relates to them. You may need to look at several images and compare the information about the individuals listed in those images to your ancestors to make this determination. Keep in mind:
- There may be more than one person in the records with the same name.
- You may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name.
- Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life.
