Tips to Keep in Mind

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.

Regarding marriage and death records, name changes, shortened names, or nicknames may have been used by your ancestors, 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.

What If I Can't Find Who I'm Looking For?

A boundary change could have occurred and the record of your ancestor is now in a neighboring. 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.

Or your ancestor immigrated to another country. Search the records of nearby areas or immigration/emigration records: Brazil Emigration and Immigration
