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.

*Use the age in the marriage records 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 been born, married or died 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.

*[[Germany Church Records|Church Records]] often were kept years before government records were required and are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900.

== How to Use the Record  ==
 
 
 
To search the collection you will need to follow this series of links:<br>⇒Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page<br>⇒Select the "Quellengattung, Zeitraum, und Bandnummer" category 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.
 
 
 
To begin your search it is helpful to know the following:
 
 
 
*The place where the event occurred
 
*The name and surname of the person
 
*The approximate date of the event
 
*The name of the parents or spouse
 
 
 
==== Using the Information  ====
 
 
 
When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors. Add this new information to your records of each family. For example:
 
 
 
*Use the marriage date and place as the basis for compiling a new family group or for verifying existing information.
 
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth of each partner to find a couple's birth records and parents' names.
 
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records.
 
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate church and land records.
 
*Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
 
 
 
==== Tips to Keep in Mind  ====
 
 
 
*The name of the officiator is a clue to their religion or area of residence in the county. However, ministers may have reported marriages performed in other counties.
 
*Compile the marriage entries for every person who has the same surname as the bride or groom; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
 
*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.
 
*The information in church records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant.
 
*Earlier records may not contain as much information as the records created after the late 1800.
 
*There is also some variation in the information given from one record to another.
 
*If you are unable to find the ancestors you are looking for search the indexes and records of nearby localities.
