== How to Use the Record  ==
+
# Select '''City'''
 +
# Select '''Cemetery'''
 +
# Select '''Record Type and Dates''' to view the images.
  
If you locate your ancestor’s burial record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given.
+
=== For Help Reading These Records ===
 
 
Burial records are often brief, so it can be easy to confuse individuals of the same name, origin, and birth date.
 
 
 
Compare what information is given with what you already know about your ancestor to make sure it is the correct person.
 
 
 
=== Search the Collection  ===
 
 
 
'''To search by image:''' <br>
 
To search the collection you will need to follow this series of links:<br> ⇒ Select “Browse through images” on the initial collection page <br> ⇒ Select the “Cemetery” category<br> ⇒ Select the “Record Type and Years” category which takes you to the images.<br>
 
 
 
Search the collection by image 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.
 
 
 
'''When searching:''' <br>
 
As you are searching, it is helpful to know such information as your ancestor's given name and surname, and some identifying information such as residence, age, and family relationships. Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as your ancestor and that your ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times.
