Tips to Keep in Mind

  • When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
  • Titles and the length of names may be clues to property ownership, occupations, rank, or status within the community.
  • Continue to search the index and records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives.
  • Be aware that, as with any index, transcription errors may occur.
  • You may need to search the records of nearby localities (such as the Demak, Jepara, Pati, and Grobogan regencies).
