How to Use the Record

In order to find an entry in these records one needs to know the name of ancestor, place, and year of a vital event in the life of the ancestor being searched.
The censuses are helpful to find enough genealogical data to research an ancestor and extended relatives in other types of records. To search this census, it is necessary to know the name of the head of household and the name of the municipality where the ancestor lived.
To search the collection, select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page ⇒Select the “Record” ⇒Select the “County” ⇒Select the “Volume and Year” 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

A suggested format for keeping track of records that you have searched is found in the wiki article Help:How to Cite FamilySearch Collections.
