== How to Use the Record  ==
+
== How Do I Search the Collection? ==
 
 
To begin your search it is helpful to know the name and other identifying information such as the residence or age.
 
 
 
==== Search the Collection ====
 
 
 
To search the collection you will need to follow this series of links:<br> ⇒ Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page<br> ⇒ Select "Record Category”<br> ⇒ Select "Record Type, Volume, and Year Range" which takes you to the images.
 
 
 
Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination. Keep in mind:
 
 
 
*There may be more than one person in the records with the same name.
 
*You may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name.
 
*Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life.
 
 
 
=== Using the 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. Add this new information to your records of each family. The information may also lead you to other records about your ancestors. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors. For example:
 
 
 
*Use the age to calculate the birth date.
 
*Use the birth date or age along with the residence or place of birth of each partner to find a couple's birth records and parents' names.
 
*Use the birth date or age along with the residence or place of birth to find the family in census records.
 
*Use the residence and names to locate church and land records.
 
 
 
=== Tips to Keep in Mind  ===
 
  
*The name of the officiator may be a clue to their religion or area of residence in the county.
+
To begin your search it is helpful to know at least some of the following:
*The name of the undertaker, mortuary, or cemetery could lead you to funeral records which often include the names and residences of other family members.
+
*The name of your ancestor.
*When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.  
+
*The approximate date of any event.
*The information in the records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant.  
+
*The place where the event occurred.
*Earlier records may not contain as much information as more recent records.
+
*The name of other family members and their relationships.
*There is also some variation in the information given from one record to another record.  
 
*Compiling the entries for every person who has the same surname is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual. It can also help you to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives. You may want to repeat this process for each new generation or surname that you identify.
 
  
=== Unable to Find Your Ancestor? ===
+
Compare the information on the image to what you already know about your ancestor to determine if it is the correct family or person. You may need to compare several images before you find your ancestor.  
  
*Check for variant spellings of the surnames.  
+
'''View images in this collection by visiting the [https://familysearch.org/search/image/index#uri=https://familysearch.org/recapi/sord/collection/2115693/waypoints Browse Page]'''then:<br> ⇒ Select "Record Category”<br> ⇒ Select Record Type, Volume, and Year Range.  
*Check for an index. There are often indexes created by local genealogical and historical societies.
 
*Search the indexes and records of nearby counties.
