<gallery perrow="3" heights="120px" widths="160px">
 +
Image:Idaho, Death Certificates (08-0408) (12-1060) Death Certificate DGS 4192434_42.jpg|Death Certificate
 +
</gallery>
  
*The place where the death occurred
+
== How Do I Search the Collection? ==
*The name of the person at the time of death
 
*The approximate death date
 
  
Fill in the requested information in the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the ancestors 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 compare the information about more than one person to find your ancestor.
+
You can search the index or view the images or both. Before searching this collection, it is helpful to know:
  
Compare the information in the death record to what you already know about your ancestor to determine if this is the correct person. You may need to compare the information of more than one person to make this determination.
+
*Name of the person  
 +
*The name of a parent or date of the event

Look at the images one by one 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 and compare the information about the individuals listed in those images to your ancestors to make this determination. Keep in mind:
+
=== How Do I Analyze the Results? ===
 +
Compare each result from your search with what you know to determine if there is a match. This may require viewing multiple records or images.
  
*There may be more than one person in the records with the same name.
 
*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.
 
  
When you have located your ancestor’s death 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.

The following suggestions may be helpful to you:
 
  
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find or verify their birth records and parents' names.  
+
==What Do I Do Next?==
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records.  
+
=== I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now? ===
*Use the residence and names of the parents (if the deceased is a child) to locate church and land records.  
+
*Copy the citation below, in case you need to find this record again later.  
*Occupations listed can lead you to employment records or other types of records such as military records.
+
*Use the age or estimated birth date to determine an approximate birth date to find other church and vital records such as birth, baptism, and marriage 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.  
+
*Use the information found in the record to find land, probate and immigration records.
*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.  
+
*Use the information found in the record to find additional family members in censuses.  
*When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.  
+
*Repeat this process with additional family members found, to find more generations of the family.  
*If you are unable to find the ancestor you are looking for,&nbsp;check for variant spellings of the surnames.
+
*[[Idaho Church Records| Church Records]] were kept years before counties began keeping records. They are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900.  
  
Keep in mind:  
+
=== I Can’t Find Who I’m Looking for, What Now? === 
 +
*If your ancestor does not have a common name, collect entries for every person who has the same surname. This list can help you find possible relatives.
 +
*If you cannot locate your ancestor in the locality in which you believe they lived, then try searching records of a nearby town or county. 
 +
*Try different spellings of your ancestor’s name.
 +
*Remember that sometimes individuals went by [http://usgenweb.org/research/nicknames.html 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. 
 +
*Check the info box above for additional FamilySearch websites and related websites that may assist you in finding similar records.
  
*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.
 
*There is also some variation in the information given from one record to another record.
