*When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.  
  
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.  
+
*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.  
  
When you have located your ancestor’s birth, marriage, or death record, carefully evaluate each piece of information about them. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors. For example:
+
*Continue to search the indexes and records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have lived in the same area or a nearby area.  
  
*Use the date along with the place to find the family in church or other records.
+
=== I Can't Find Who I'm Looking for, What Now? ===
*The parent’s birth places can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family.
