*There may be more than one person in the records with the same name.
+
For tips about searching on-line collections see the on-line article [[FamilySearch Search Tips and Tricks]].
*You may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name.
 
*Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life.
 
*If your ancestor used an alias or a nickname, be sure to check for those alternate names.
 
*Even though these indexes are very accurate they may still contain inaccuracies, such as altered spellings, misinterpretations, and optical character recognition errors if the information was scanned.

=== Using the Information ===
+
==What Do I Do Next?==
 +
Whenever possible, view the original records to verify the information and to find additional information that might not be reported. These pieces of information can lead you to additional records and family members.  
  
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, you can use passenger lists to:
 
  
*Learn an immigrant’s place of origin
+
=== I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now? ===
*Confirm their date of arrival
+
*Use the information to find other records such as emigrations, port records, ship’s manifests, birth, christening, census, and land records.
 
*Learn foreign and “Americanized” names  
 
*Learn foreign and “Americanized” names  
*Find records in his or her country of origin such as emigrations, port records, or ship’s manifests.
+
*Use the information to find additional family members.
 +
*Repeat this process with additional family members found, to find more generations of the family.
 +
*[[Idaho Church Records|Church Records]] often were kept years before government records were required and are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900.
  
=== Tips to Keep in Mind ===
+
=== I Can’t Find Who I’m Looking for, What Now? === 
 +
*Try viewing the original record to see if there were errors in the transcription of the name, age, residence, etc.  Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name.
 +
*Collect entries for every person who has the same surname. This list can help you identify possible relations that can be verified by records.
 +
*If you cannot locate your ancestor in the locality in which you believe they lived, then try searching records of a nearby locality in an area search. 
 +
*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. 
 +
*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. 
 +
*Search the indexes and records of [[Idaho, United States Genealogy]].
 +
*Search in the [[Idaho Archives and Libraries]].
  
*If your ancestor had a common name, be sure to look at all the entries for a name before you decide which is correct.
+
== Citing This Collection  ==
*Continue to search the passenger lists to identify siblings, parents, and other relatives in the same or other generations who may have immigrated at the same time.
 
*If your ancestor has an uncommon surname, you may want to obtain the passenger list of every person who shares your ancestor’s surname if they lived in the same county or nearby. You may not know how or if they are related, but the information could lead you to more information about your own ancestors.
 
  
=== Unable to Find Your Ancestor? ===
+
Citing your sources makes it easy for others to find and evaluate the records you used. When you copy information from a record, list where you found that information. Here you can find citations already created for the entire collection and for each individual record or image.
 +
   
  
*Check for variant spellings of the name.
