Using the Information =

When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details such as a title, an occupation, or land ownership. Add this new information to your records of each family.

You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors. This would include such information as a place of birth that could give clues about the family's former residence. Use this information to search records in that area at the time the family would have been there.
