== What is in this Collection? ==         
 +
This collection will include records from Neumarkt, Bavaria from 1453 to 1973 and may include the following record types: 
 +
*Cemetery records
 +
*Court records
 +
*Funeral home records
 +
*Guild registers
 +
*Jewish records 
 +
*Land records
 +
*Probate records
 +
*School records
 +
*Tax records
 +
*Voting registers 
 +
This collection is being published as images become available. 
 +
Most of the records are handwritten in narrative style and, in later years, in formatted forms. For help reading these records, see [[Germany Handwriting]].
 +
City records were created to help civil authorities and for the benefits of its citizens. Most of the records listed in this collection are reliable to a point, depending on the knowledge of the person giving the information and the person that received it. The civil registration (after 1876) and church records are the most often used records for genealogical research. However, if those are not available, the population registers (census) and emigration records are also reliable and great records to search for data that will help find other family members and other records.

Look at each image or record 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 or records and compare the information about the individuals listed to your ancestors to make this determination. Keep in mind there may be more than one person in the records with the same name and you will want to look carefully at dates, places and relations to identify your ancestor from another person. You also may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name if they were known by a nickname or changed their name from the original birth record name. Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life and may be listed in records with any of those variations.         
 +
To search the collection fill in the requested information in the boxes on the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the individuals in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person.

*Use the age in the citizen to find an approximate birth year to begin your search in church or civil records.         
 +
*Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have moved, been recruited or lived nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify. Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual. This compiled list can help you identify possible relations that can be further verified by researching [https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/Germany_Vital_Records_Index_(FamilySearch_Historical_Records) vital records] in the country.         
 +
*When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details such as a title, an occupation, or land ownership. Add this new information to your records of each family. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors.

*Switch to a different record collection. Depending on the time period, either German Civil Registration records or German Church records may be more useful.

*While searching, it is helpful to know such information as the ancestor’s given name and surname, some identifying information such as residence and age, and family relationships.

To search the collection, follow this series of links: <br>
 
 
 
⇒Select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page <br> ⇒Select “Record type” <br> ⇒Select “Record type, Year range, and Volume” which takes you to the images.<br>
 
 
 
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.
 
 
 
In order to find data in this collection, it will be necessary to know at least the name of the ancestor, the place of the event, and an approximate date.
 
 
 
Some records have indexes at the end of the volume. Frequently, these indexes are arranged by the given name of the individual and sometimes use the Latin form of the name. Those volumes without indexes need to be searched chronologically for the individuals sought.
 
 
 
Begin your search by finding your ancestors in the index. Use the locator information in the index (such as page, entry, or certificate number) to locate your ancestors in the records. Compare the information in the record to what you already know about your ancestor to determine if this is the correct person. You may need to compare the information of more than one person to make this determination. Be aware that as with any index, transcription errors may occur.
 
 
 
When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information about other people listed in the record. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors.
 
 
 
For example:
 
 
 
*Use the birth or baptism date and place to find the family in census records.
 
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate civil and land records.
 
*The father’s occupation can lead you to employment records, military records, or other types of records.
 
*The parents' places of origin can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family.
 
*Marriage date and place may help find a couple's children.
 
*Burial place may also help you find a couple's migration pattern.
 
 
 
It is often helpful to extract the information on all children with the same parents. If the surname is unusual, you may want to compile baptism entries for every person of the same surname and sort them into families based on the names of the parents. Continue to search the baptism records to identify siblings, parents, and other relatives in the same or other generations who were born, married, and died in or near to the same place.
