== How Do I Search the Collection? ==
 
 
To begin your search it is helpful to know the following:
 
 
 
*The place where the event occurred
 
*The approximate date the event occurred
 
*The name of the individual or individuals such as the names of the bride and groom
 
 
 
=== = Search the Collection ===
 
 
 
To search the collection by name fill in your ancestor’s name in the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about those in the list to what you already know about your own ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person.
 
 
 
If you did not find the person you were looking for, you may need to search the collection image by image. <br> ⇒Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page<br> ⇒Select the "Record Category" category<br> ⇒Select the "Record Type, Record Description, and Year Range" category which takes you to the images
 
 
 
Look at the images one by one. Again you will need to compare the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor.
 
  
Be aware that with either search you may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination. Keep in mind:
+
To begin your search it is helpful to know at least some of the following:
 +

*The name of the intended spouse.
  
*There may be more than one person in the records with the same name.
+
Compare the information on the image to what you already know about your ancestor to determine if it is the correct family or person. You may need to compare several images before you find your ancestor.
*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  ====
+
For tips about searching on-line collections see the on-line article [[FamilySearch Search Tips and Tricks]].
  
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. Add this new information to your records of each family. The information may also lead you to other records about your ancestors. For example:

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.
  
*Use the marriage date and place as the basis for compiling a new family group or for verifying existing information.
+
=== I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now? ===
*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 age to calculate the birth date to find other records such as birth, christening, marriage, census, and death records.  
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records.  
+
*Use the probate date as a substitute death date.
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate church and land records.  
+
*Use the name of the undertaker, mortuary, or cemetery to find funeral and cemetery records.
 
*Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
 
*Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
 +
*Use the occupations to find employment or military records.
 +
*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]].
  
*The name of the officiator may be a clue to their religion or area of residence in the county.
+
{{Tip|Don't overlook {{FHL|Idaho, Gooding|keywords|disp}} items in the FamilySearch Library Catalog. }}
*Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname. This is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
 
*Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have been born, married, or died 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.
 
*When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
 
*Earlier records may not contain as much information as the records created after the late 1800s.
 
*There is also some variation in the information given from one record to another record.
 
  
==== Unable to Find Your Ancestor? ====
+
== Citing This Collection ==
  
*Check for variant spellings of the surnames.  
+
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 an index. There are often indexes at the beginning of each volume.
 
*Search the indexes and records of nearby counties.
