How to Use the Record

To search the collection you will need to follow this series of links:
⇒Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page
⇒Select the "Record Type" category
⇒Select the "Year" category
⇒Select the "Certificate Number" category which takes you to the images

Search the collection by image comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.

As you are searching it is helpful to know such information as your ancestor’s given name and surname, some identifying information such as residence and age, and family relationships. Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as your ancestor and that your ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times.

To begin your search it is helpful to know the following:

  • The name of the person at the time of death.
  • The approximate death date.

Compare the information in the records to what you already know about your ancestor to locate your ancestor's record. You may need to compare the information of more than one person to make this determination.

When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors. Add this new information to your records of each family. For example:

  • Use the birth information to find or verify their birth records and parents' names.
  • Use the residence and names of the parents (if the deceased is a child) to locate other records such as civil registrations and church records.
  • Search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the deceased who may have died or been buried in the same place or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family or even the second marriage of a parent. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.

If you are unable to find the ancestors you are looking for, check for variant spellings of the surnames.

Keep in mind:

  • The information in these records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant.
  • Earlier records may not contain as much information as the records created after the late 1800s.
  • There is also some variation in the information given from one record to another record.
