Tips for Using FamilySearch.org/search

This is a collection of HISTORICAL Records that spans billions of names across hundreds of collections—including birth, marriage, death, probate, land, military, IGI extracted, and more.  This online database stores all the historical documents and is available for searching.  You can instantly search through hundreds of millions of records for information about your ancestors at FamilySearch.org/search
■FamilySearch.org/search protects privacy. No information about living people is publicly available.
■For women, use maiden names to find birth and marriage records, but married names for
census and death information.
■Add five years to life spans
■Try different spellings of a name (Miller, Milr).
■Try different forms of a name (Elizabeth, Liz, Liza).
■Immigrants often changed their names.
■If you can’t find information about a person, look for information about family members.
