Fill in the requested information in the initial search page. Look at the list of entries created by your search. Compare the information about the ancestors in the list to what you already know about your ancestor to determine which entry is the record for your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to find your ancestor. Click on the name for your ancestor. This will take you to the full index entry which includes a Family History Library film number. You can then search the film for your ancestor's record.

==== Using the Information  ====
+
'''To search this collection by name:'''<br>
 +
Fill in the requested information in the boxes on the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the individuals 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 look at the information on several individuals comparing the information about them to your ancestors to make this determination.
  
When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information about other people listed in the record. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors. For example:
+
'''To search by image:'''<br>

 +
⇒ Select the appropiate ''Comune or Frazione: Parish'' <br>
 +

 +
⇒ Select the appropriate ''“Year range”'' which takes you to the images.

===I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now?===                         
*The father’s profession can lead you to other types of records such as military records.  
+
*Use the age in the citizen to find an approximate birth year to begin your search in church or civil records.                          
*The parents' birth places can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family.  
+
*Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have moved, been recruited or lived nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify. Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual. This compiled list can help you identify possible relations that can be further verified by researching [https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/Italy_Vital_Records_Index vital records indexes] in the country.                 
*Burial places may also help to establish a migration pattern.  
+
*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 such as a title, an occupation, or land ownership. Add this new information to your records of each family. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors.                          
*It is often helpful to extract the information on all children with the same parents. If the surname is unusual, you may want to compile the entries for every person of the same surname and sort them into families based on the names of the parents. Continue to search the records to identify siblings, parents, and other relatives in the same or other generations who were born, married and died in the same place or nearby.

*Switch to a different record collection. Depending on the time period, either Civil Registration records or Church Records may be more useful.                                 
 +
*While searching, it is helpful to know such information as the ancestor’s given name and surname, some identifying information such as residence and age, and family relationships. Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as an ancestor and that the ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times.                          
 +
*Keep in mind that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name.                         
 +
*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. Pay special attention to how the name should have been pronounced and try variations on the pronunciation.                         
 +
*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.

== Citing this Collection ==
  
*Check for variant spellings of the names.

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. Some records have indexes at the end of the volume. Frequently, these indexes are arranged by the given name of the individual and sometimes use the Latin form of the name. Those volumes without indexes need to be searched chronologically for the individuals sought.
 
*Search the indexes and records of nearby parishes.
