This table can help you decide which records to search.

  1. In column 1, find the category closest to your research goal.
  2. In column 2, find the types of records that are most likely to have the information you need.
  3. In column 3, find additional record types that may be useful.
  4. Then turn to the section of this outline that corresponds to the record type you chose. The section gives information about the records, how to search them, and how to find them in the Family History Library Catalog. Some records are not at the Family History Library.

Note: The terms used in columns 2 and 3 are the same as the topic headings used in this outline and in the Locality section of the Family History Library Catalog. Also, records containing previous research - genealogy, biography, history, periodicals, and societies - could provide information for nearly all research goals, but these have not been listed unless they are especially helpful.
