'''For Help Reading These Records'''
  
For example:  
+
These records are in Spanish. For help reading the records, see the following resources:  
  
*Use the marriage date and place as the basis for compiling a new family group or for verifying existing information.
+
*[[Mexico Language and Languages]]
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth of each partner to find a couple's birth records and parents' names.
+
*[[Spanish Genealogical Word List]]
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records.  
+
*[https://script.byu.edu/Pages/Spanish/en/welcome.aspx BYU Spanish Script Tutorial]
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate church and land records.

*FamilySearch Learning Center videos:
*Occupations listed can lead you to other types of records such as employment or military records.
+
**[https://familysearch.org/learningcenter/lesson/reading-spanish-handwritten-records-lesson-1-the-spanish-alphabet/217 Reading Spanish Handwritten Records, Lesson 1]
*Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.

+
**[https://familysearch.org/learningcenter/lesson/reading-spanish-handwritten-records-lesson-3-reading-spanish-records/220 Reading Spanish Handwritten Records, Lesson 3]
*Compile the marriage entries for every person who has the same surname as the bride or groom; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.  
 
*Continue to search the marriage records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the bride and groom who may have married 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 marriage number to identify previous marriages.  
 
*When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
 
  
Keep in mind:

 +
=== I Can't Find Who I'm Looking For, What Now?===
  
*The information in church records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant.

*Earlier records may not contain as much information as the records created after the late 1800.
 
*There is also some variation in the information given from one record to another.
