How to Use the Record

Next to parish registers, citizen rolls provide some of the best family information. To begin your search you need to know at least the name of your ancestor and some identifying information such as birthdate. If you know only the age, you can approximate the birthdate. Use the birthdate and place, to locate your ancestor in church records.

Search the Collection

To search the collection,
⇒Select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page
⇒Select “Record type and Year range”
⇒Select "Item of interest" 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.

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.

Tips to Keep in Mind

When using these records keep in mind:

  • The information may be incorrect.
  • The ages listed may not be correct.
  • A given name may not be the same as the name used in vital records.
  • Names may be spelled as they sound. Look for variant spellings of the names as well as nicknames.
  • Place-names may be misspelled.
  • Some parts of the record may be illegible.
  • If the family is not at the expected location, you should search the surrounding area.
