Record Content

The records may contain any of the following pieces of information:

  • Individual names
  • Ages
  • Birth dates and places
  • Death dates and places
  • Marriage dates and places
  • Relationships
  • Residences

How to Use the Record

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

  • Name
  • Type of event
  • Approximate date of event

Search the Collection

To search the collection
⇒ Select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page
⇒ Select the "Record Category" category
⇒ Select the "Record Type, Record Description, and Year Range" category 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 and places to search for church and census records.
  • If an age is listed, use it to determine an approximate birth date.
  • Use the naturalization information to help you locate immigration records such as a passenger lists which would usually be kept records at the port of entry into the United States.

Tips to Keep in Mind

  • It may helpful to extract information on all individuals with the same surname within each record type. These individuals may be family members of your ancestor. Try to arrange these individuals into family groups.
  • The witnesses named in the records may have been relatives of the primary person in the record. You should also search for them in the records.
  • Birth places can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family.

Unable to Find Your Ancestor?

  • Look for variant spellings of the surnames.
  • Look for an index. There are often indexes at the beginning of each volume. Local genealogical and historical societies often have indexes to local records.
  • Search the indexes and records of nearby counties.
