Before beginning a search in these records, it is best to know the full name of the individual in question, as well as an approximate time range for the desired record. When entered into the search engine on the Collection Page, this information provides the quickest, most reliable path to finding the correct person. Of course, other information can be substituted as necessary.
  
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 "_____________" category<br> ⇒ Select the "_____________" category<br> ⇒ Select the "_____________" category which takes you to the images.
+
=== Search By Name By Visiting the Collection Page ===
 +
Fill in the requested information in the initial search page to return a list of possible matches. Compare the individuals on the list with what is already known to find the correct family or person. This step may require examining multiple individuals before a match is located.
  
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.

*Make sure to fully transcribe and cite the record entry for future reference; see below for assistance in citing this collection. Save or print a copy of the image if possible.
 +
*Use the information which has been discovered to find more. For instance, use the age listed in the record to estimate a year of birth, if that is yet undetermined.
 +
*Continue to search the index to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives. A common surname often indicated family members, but do not rely too heavily on the surname alone to suggest a relationship. Remember that certain members of the same family might have different surnames, and that multiple individuals with a common surname might not be related. .

=== I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now? ===
 +
*When looking for a person with a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which individual is correct. Use other information, such as place of birth, age, occupation, or names of family members, to determine which candidate is the correct person. If listed, a personal title may be a clue to property ownership or occupation, either of which might be noted in other records.
 +
*Check for variants of given names and surnames; simple clerical errors were always possible. In addition, foreign spellings were not always understood by immigration officials, so pay special attention to how the name should have been pronounced and try variations on the pronunciation. Individuals could also be listed under a middle name, nickname, or abbreviation of their given name. For women, it was not uncommon to revert to a maiden name after the death of a husband.  
 +
*Vary the search terms. For example, search by either the given name or surname to return broader list of possible candidates which can then be examined for matches. Alternatively, try expanding the date range.
 +
*Check the records of other ports in Brazil. Information on these other ports can be found on the [[Brazil Emigration and Immigration]] page.
 +
*Look at the actual image of the record to verify the information found in the online description, if possible.

Citing sources correctly makes it easier to refer back to information that has already been discovered; proper citations are therefore indispensable to keeping track of genealogical research. Following established formulae in formatting citations also allows others to verify completed research by helping them find and examine records for themselves.
