The table below can help you decide which records to search. In column 1 find the goal you selected. In column 2 find the types of records that are most likely to have the information you need. Then turn to that section of this outline. (The terms used in columns 2 and 3 are the same as the topic headings used in this outline and in the “Locality Search” section of the Family History Library Catalog.) Column 3 contains additional records that may also be useful. Records containing previous research (genealogies, biographies, histories, periodicals, and societies) could provide information for nearly all of your research goals. These have only been listed if they are especially helpful for the goal.
