When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.

 +
For death records, the information in records is usually reliable, but depends upon the knowledge of the informant.
 +
 
 +
Regarding marriage and death records, name changes, shortened names, or nicknames may have been used by your ancestors, so pay attention to other relationships (parents, spouse, siblings, children, etc.) that can confirm whether you have the right person/record.
 +
 
 +
Continue to search the marriage records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the bride and groom who may have married in the same county or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family or even the second marriage of a parent. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.

Tips to Keep in Mind

When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.

For death records, the information in records is usually reliable, but depends upon the knowledge of the informant.

Regarding marriage and death records, name changes, shortened names, or nicknames may have been used by your ancestors, so pay attention to other relationships (parents, spouse, siblings, children, etc.) that can confirm whether you have the right person/record.

Continue to search the marriage records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the bride and groom who may have married in the same county or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family or even the second marriage of a parent. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.

Continue to search the indexes and records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have lived in the same area or a nearby area.

Unable to Find your Ancestor?

A boundary change could have occurred and the record of your ancestor is now in a neighboring region. These regions neighbor Puno:

  • Madre de Dios to the north,
  • Cusco and Arequipa on the west,
  • Moquegua on the southwest, and
  • Tacna to the south.

Church records are also a good substitute when birth, marriage, and death records can’t be found or are unavailable.
