Begin your search by finding your ancestors in the index. Name indexes to baptisms, marriages, and death or burials make it possible to access a specific record quickly. Remember that these indexes may contain inaccuracies, such as altered spellings, misinterpretations, and optical character recognition errors if the information was scanned.  
+
For burial records, the information in records is usually reliable, but depends upon the knowledge of the informant.  
  
'''When searching the index it is helpful to know the following:'''
+
Regarding marriage and burial 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.

+
=== Search the Collection  ===
*The name and surname of the person

Use the locator information found in the index (such as page, entry, or certificate number) to locate your ancestors in the records.
