The records are usually listed in chronological order by the date of registration. The old registry books were handwritten in narrative style, but the newer and current registries are handwritten in formatted records.

+
== What Do I Do Next?  ==
  
Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.
+
=== I Found Who I Was Looking For, What Now?  ===
  
Indexes are available on some of these groups of images. If indexes are available, check these for the name first. Indexes are usually located at the beginning of a group of images or at the end. Find your ancestors name and look for the locator information next to the name (such as page, entry, or certificate number). This will help you find the record you are looking for in the collection.  
+
*Use the marriage date and place as the basis for compiling a new family group or for verifying existing information.
 +
*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.
 +
*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. This can also help you 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.
 +
*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.

*New information is constantly being indexed, microfilmed or updated. Periodically check back and see if your ancestor’s records have been added.
 +
*When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
 +
*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. Check [[Brazil Catholic Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]] and [[Brazil Church Records]] for more information.
