The following suggestions may be helpful to you:
+
==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. 
  
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find or verify their birth records and parents' names.
+
=== I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now? ===
*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 (if the deceased is a child) to locate church and land records.
 
*Occupations listed can lead you to employment records or other types of records such as military records.
 
*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 of the deceased who may have died or been buried 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.
 
*If you are unable to find the ancestor you are looking for,&nbsp;check for variant spellings of the surnames.
 
  
Keep in mind:
+
*Use the information to locate funeral home, obituary or cemetery record.
 +
*Use the information to find other records such as birth, christening, marriage, census, land and probate 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.
  
*The most reliable information is the name, date and place of death and burial. Other information will only be as reliable as the informant’s knowledge or memory.  
+
=== I Can’t Find Who I’m Looking for, What Now? === 
*There is also some variation in the information given from one record to another record.
+
*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]].
