=== 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.
