These pieces of information may give you new biographical details and lead you to other records about your ancestors. Add this new information to your records of each family. For example, you can use these lists to:
 +
 
 +
*Learn an immigrant’s place of origin
 +
*Confirm their date of arrival
 +
*Learn foreign and “Americanized” names
 +
*Find records in his or her country of origin such as emigrations, port records, or ship’s manifests.

*If your ancestor had a common name, be sure to look at all the entries for a name before you decide which is correct.
 +
*Continue to search the lists to identify siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have immigrated at the same time.
 +
*If your ancestor has an uncommon surname, you may want to obtain the passenger list of every person who shares your ancestor’s surname. You may not know how or if they are related, but the information could lead you to more information about your own ancestors.

*If you do not find the name you are looking for check for variant spellings of their names.

*Try alternative search methods such as only filling in the surname search box (or the given name search box) on the landing page leaving the other box empty and then click on search. This should return a list of everyone with that particular name. You could then browse the list for individuals that may be your ancestor.
