=== Using the Information  ===
+
== What Do I Do Next? ==
 +
Indexes and transcriptions may not include all the data found in the original records. Look at the actual image of the record, if you can, to verify the information and to find additional information.
  
When you have located your ancestor’s 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. For example use the date and locality to search for census and church records.
+
=== I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now? ===
  
=== Tips to Keep in Mind ===
+
*Copy the citation below, in case you need to find this record again later.
 +
*Use a Probate record to identify adoptions, guardians, heirs and relatives.
 +
*Use a probate record to approximate a death date, then find a death certificate.
 +
*For earlier years, use the probate record to substitute for civil birth and death records.
 +
*Use the information found in the record to find church and vital records such as birth, baptism and marriage records.  
 +
*Use the information found in the record to find immigration and land records.
 +
*Use the information found in the record to find additional family members in censuses.
 +
*Repeat this process with additional family members found, to find more generations of the family.
 +
*[[Ohio Church Records| Church Records]] were kept years before counties began keeping records. They are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900.
  
*Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname as the deceased; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
 
*Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have been 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.
 
*When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
 
*Earlier records may not contain as much information as the records created after 1900.
 
*There is also some variation in the information given from one record to another record.
 
*Witnesses may be close relatives.
 
  
=== Unable to Find Your Ancestor  ===
+
=== I Can’t Find Who I’m Looking for, What Now? ===
  
*Check for variant spellings of the surnames.  
+
*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.
*Check for an index. There are often indexes at the beginning of each volume. Local historical and genealogical groups also compile indexes to local records.  
+
*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. 
*Search the indexes and records of nearby counties.
+
*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.
