I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now?

  • This collection is an index only. Use the GS number found in the record you've found and put it into the FamilySearch Catalog under 'Film/Fiche Number' category. This will send you to where you can find more information on looking at the actual record that the index came from. The actual record may contain more information that wasn't indexed.
  • Don't forget to search before and after the date of the record you found for other children's births in the family!

I Can't Find Who I'm Looking for, What Now?
