*Use the dates along with places or residences to help you locate the family in other records such as census, church, and land records.
 +
*Use age listed to determine approximate birth dates.

 +
*Use land records to track family migrations.
 +
 
 +
==== Tips to Keep in Mind  ====

 +
*You may need to search for both their Indian name and their English name.
 +
*Be aware that, as with any compiled source, transcription errors may occur.
