How to Use the Record

To begin your search it is helpful to know the names of the parents and approximate birth dates.

Search the Collection

To search the collection you will need to follow this series of links:
⇒Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page
⇒Select "First Letter of Surname"
⇒Select "Surname, Given Name, Birth Year" 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 which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.

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. For example:

  • Use the names of the parents' father and mother to find additional generations of the family.
  • Use the place and names to locate other records for the time period such as census and church records.

Tips to Keep in Mind

  • Use this information as a guideline. Be aware that the information has not been verified and may have come from the submitters memory or from family records.
  • These are compiled records so each sheet may have many sources of information.
  • If you are unable to find your ancestor look for various spellings of the names.
