What Do I Do Next?

I Found Who I Was Looking For, What Now?

  • Copy the citation below to document the image for future refence.
  • Use existing information to identify the ancestor in the images.
  • Use information from additional sources to document the image.
  • Church Records often were kept years before government records were required and are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900.

I Can’t Find Who I’m Looking For, What Now?

  • The complete collection, as well as a more detailed description of each photograph, can are found on the BYU Library website.
  • Standard spelling of names typically did not exist during the periods our ancestors lived in. Try variations of your ancestor’s name while searching the index or browsing through images.
  • Remember that sometimes individuals went by nicknames or alternated between using first and middle names. Try searching for these names as well.
