Some record sets have indexes; these indexes were created at the end of the year. Copy errors could have been made in the index, so you want to find the actual record to verify the information is correct. Using the index is a helpful way to find the actual record.  
  
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.  
+
See the sections below for tips and uses for searching and finding the record of your ancestor in this collection and using the information in the record.
  
The civil registration of birth, marriage, and death are great records to research for genealogical data. These records contain important information to continue research for one or more generations. In order to find an entry in these records it is necessary to know the name, place, and year of a vital event in the life of the ancestor being searched.  
+
If you are unable to find a record for your ancestor in this collection, see the corresponding section below.
  
The municipal censuses are helpful to find enough genealogical data to research an ancestor and extended relatives in other types of records. These records are great if civil or church records are not available, just remember the data is not 100% accurate. 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.

 +
*[https://script.byu.edu/Pages/Spanish/en/welcome.aspx Script tutorial for Spanish]
 +
 +
=== Using the Information ===
 +
*Use the marriage date and place as the basis for compiling a new family group or for verifying existing information.
 +
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth of each partner to find a couple's birth records and parents' names.
 +
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate church records [[Spain Catholic Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]].
 +
*Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
 +
*The name of a marriage officiator is a clue to their religion or area of residence in the province. However, ministers may have reported marriages performed in other provinces.
 +
*Compile the marriage entries for every person who has the same surname as the bride or groom; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
 +
*Use the marital status (whether a divorce or death dissolved a marriage) to identify previous marriages.
 +
*Witnesses often were relatives of the parents.
 +
 +
=== 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 (the person who reported the death).
 +
 +
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 province.
 +
 +
Church records are also a good substitute when birth, marriage, and death records can’t be found or are unavailable.
