==== Using the Information  ====
+
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.
  
When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details. Add this new information to your records of each family. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors. For example:

}}
==== Tips to Keep in Mind  ====
 
 
 
*The name of the undertaker or mortuary could lead you to funeral and cemetery records, which often include the names and residences of other family members.
 
*Compile the entries for every person with the same surname. This is especially helpful for rural areas or unusual surnames.
 
*Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the deceased who may have been buried in the same cemetery or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.
 
*When looking for a person with a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
 
 
 
==== Unable to Find Your Ancestor?  ====
 
 
 
*Check for variant spellings of the surnames.
 
*Search the indexes and records of nearby cemeteries.
