What Do I Do Next?
I Found Who I Was Looking For, What Now?
- Use the birth date to find other church and vital records such as birth, baptism, marriage, and death records. Also search for immigration, military, land and probate records.
- Use the information to find additional family members in censuses.
- Repeat this process with additional family members found, to find more generations of the family.
- 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?
- Try viewing the original record. Indexes and transcriptions may not include all the data found in the original records. Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name.
- If your ancestor does not have a common name, collect entries for every person who has the same surname. This list can help you identify possible relatives that can be verified by records.
- If you cannot locate your ancestor in the locality in which you believe they lived, then try searching records of a nearby locality in an area search.
- Try variant spellings of your ancestor’s name.
- Remember that sometimes individuals went by nicknames or alternated between using first and middle names. Try searching for these names as well.
- Search the indexes and records of Wisconsin, United States Genealogy.
- Search in the FamilySearch Library Catalog
