What Do I Do Next?

I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now?

  • For Mexico put: *Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in 1930, Mexico National Census.
  • Use the residence and names of the parents to locate other church and land records.
  • Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.

I Can’t Find The Person I’m Looking for, What Now?

  • Check for variants of given names, surnames, and place names.
  • Civil registration records are also a good source of genealogical information. You should obtain copies of both church records and civil registration, when possible, since they do not necessarily provide the same information. For example, baptismal registers sometimes provide the names of the fathers of illegitimate children when the civil registration does not.
  • There may be more than one person with the same name.
