== How Do I Search the Collection? ==
 +
 +
Some record sets have indexes; these indexes were created at the end of the year. Copy errors could have been made in the index, so you want to find the actual record to verify the information is correct. Using the index is a helpful way to find the actual record.
 +
 +
See the sections below for tips and uses for searching and finding the record of your relatives in this collection and using the information in the record.
 +
 +
If you are unable to find a record for your relative in this collection, see the corresponding section below.
  
== How to Use the Record  ==
+
'''When searching:'''<br> As you are searching it is helpful to know such information as your relative's first name, or some identifying information such as residence, age, and family relationships. <br>
 +
'''Search by Name by visiting the [https://familysearch.org/search/collection/2016195 Collection Page]:'''<br>
 +
Fill in the requested information in the boxes on the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches.
  
To search the collection you will need to follow this series of links:<br> ⇒ Select the ''"Browse"'' link in the initial search page <br> ⇒Select the appropriate ''"Municipality"'' <br> ⇒Select the appropriate ''"Civil Registration Office "'' <br> ⇒Select the appropriate ''"Record Type and Years "'', which takes you to the images

<br> Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine if the image relates to them. You may need to look at several images and compare the information about the individuals listed in those images to your ancestors to make this determination. Keep in mind: There may be more than one person in the records with the same name. You may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name. Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life.

 +
 
 +
Once you have found your relative, it is useful to check and verify the following:
 +
*Use the marriage date and place as the basis for compiling a new family group or for verifying existing information.
 +
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth of each partner to find a couple's birth records and parents' names.
 +
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records [[Brazil Census]].
 +
*Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
 +
*The name of a marriage officiator is a clue to their religion or area of residence in the county. However, ministers may have reported marriages performed in other counties.
 +
*Compile the marriage entries for every person who has the same surname as the bride or groom; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
 +
*Use the marital status to identify previous marriages.
 +
*Witnesses often were relatives of the parents.
 +
 
 +
=== I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now? ===
 +
 
 +
When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
 +
 
 +
For death records, the information in records is usually reliable, but depends upon the knowledge of the informant.
 +
 
 +
For marriage and death records, name changes, shortened names, or nicknames may have been used by your relatives, so pay attention to other relationships (parents, spouse, siblings, children, etc.) that can confirm whether you have the right person/record.
 +
 
 +
Continue to search the marriage records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the bride and groom who may have married in the same county or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family or even the second marriage of a parent. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.

To learn more about using the information in civil records, view this lesson for free: Brazil Beginning Research Series Lesson 2: Civil Registration Records - English

Once you have found your relative, it is useful to check and verify the following:

  • Use the marriage date and place as the basis for compiling a new family group or for verifying existing information.
  • Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth of each partner to find a couple's birth records and parents' names.
  • Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records Brazil Census.
  • Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
  • The name of a marriage officiator is a clue to their religion or area of residence in the county. However, ministers may have reported marriages performed in other counties.
  • Compile the marriage entries for every person who has the same surname as the bride or groom; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
  • Use the marital status to identify previous marriages.
  • Witnesses often were relatives of the parents.

I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now?

When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.

For death records, the information in records is usually reliable, but depends upon the knowledge of the informant.

For marriage and death records, name changes, shortened names, or nicknames may have been used by your relatives, so pay attention to other relationships (parents, spouse, siblings, children, etc.) that can confirm whether you have the right person/record.

Continue to search the marriage records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the bride and groom who may have married in the same county or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family or even the second marriage of a parent. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.

Continue to search the indexes and records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have lived in the same area or a nearby area.

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

A boundary change could have occurred and the record of you ancestor is now in a neighboring area. Search the records and indexes of neighboring cities, provinces, and regions.

Church Records are also a good substitute when birth, marriage, and death records can’t be found or are unavailable.
