== Record Description ==
+
⇒ Select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page <br>
 +
⇒ Select “Quellengattung” <br>
 +
⇒ Select “Quellengattung, Zeitraum, und Bandnummer” which takes you to the images. 
 +
 +
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. You may need to look at the information on several individuals comparing the information about them to your ancestors to make this determination.         
 +
===I Found Who I was Looking for, Now What?===           
 +
*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. Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as an ancestor and that the ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times.

*Keep in mind that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name.

*Standard spelling of names typically did not exist during the periods our ancestors lived in. Try variations of your ancestor’s name while searching the index or browsing through images. Pay special attention to how the name should have been pronounced and try variations on the pronunciation.           
 +
*Remember that sometimes individuals went by [http://usgenweb.org/research/nicknames.shtml nicknames] or alternated between using first and middle names. Try searching for [http://genealogy.about.com/od/first_names/fl/nickname-given-name-equivalents.htm these names] as well.

'''Records found in this collection may include the following:'''
 
 
 
*Names of parents, children, witnesses
 
*Dates and places of events, ages
 
*Residence and religion of principals
 
*Occupation of principal person and maybe of other people listed depending on the record

== How to Use the Record  ==
 
 
 
To begin your search it is helpful to know the following:
 
 
 
*Name of the ancestor
 
*Type of event or record to search
 
*Approximate date.
 
 
 
==== Search the Collection  ====
 
 
 
To search the collection, follow this series of links:<br>
 
⇒Select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page <br>⇒ Select the “Quellengattung” <br>⇒ Select the “Quellengattung, Zeitraum, und Bandnummer” which takes you to the images.
 
 
 
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.
 
 
 
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.
 
 
 
==== Using the Information  ====
 
 
 
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. Add these pieces of information to your records. Next, look for clues that can lead you to other records about your ancestors. For example use the age to calculate a birthdate. Then use the birthdate, name and religion to search in church records.
 
 
 
==== Tips to Keep in Mind  ====
 
 
 
*The birthplaces or places of origin can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family.
 
*Download or copy the record as well as the web address so you can refer back to it if necessary.
 
*If the surname is unusual, you may want to compile a list of every person with the same surname. You may be able to sort them into families based on the names of the parents.
 
 
 
==== Unable to Find Your Ancestor?  ====
 
 
 
*Look for variant spellings of the names.
 
*Look for an index. There are often indexes at the beginning of each volume.
 
*Search the indexes and records of nearby localities.

When you copy information from a record, you should list where you found the information. This will help you or others to find the record again. It is also good to keep track of records where you did not find information, including the names of the people you looked for in the records.
 
 
 
A suggested format for keeping track of records that you have searched is found in the wiki article [[Help:How to Cite FamilySearch Collections]].
