How to Use the Record
To begin your search, it is helpful to know the following:
- Name of the primary individual and some other identifying information, such as date of the event.
Search the Collection
To search the collection images, select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page. Then follow this series of links:
⇒Select the appropriate "Province"
⇒Select the appropriate "Municipality"
⇒Select the appropriate "Record Type and Years," which takes you to the images.
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.
Using the Information
When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details such as a title, an occupation, or land ownership. Add this new information to your records of each family. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors.
