== How to Use the Record ==
+
== How Do I Search the Collection? ==
 +
 
 +
Some record sets have indexes; these indexes were created at the end of the year. Copy errors could have been made in the index, so you want to find the actual record to verify the information is correct. Using the index is a helpful way to find the actual record.
 +
 
 +
'''When searching:''' As you are searching it is helpful to know such information as your ancestor's given name and surname, some identifying information such as an estimated event date, residence, age, and family relationships.
 +
 
 +
'''Search by Name by visiting the [https://familysearch.org/search/collection/2046777 Collection Page]:'''<br>Fill in the requested information in the boxes on the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the individuals in the list to what you know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to look at the information on several individuals comparing the information about them to your ancestors to make this determination. Keep in mind: 
  
To search the collection select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page<br>⇒ Select the appropriate “Provincia”<br>⇒Select the appropriate “Distrito o municipalidad”<br>⇒ Select the appropriate "Tipo de registro y años" which takes you to the images.  
+
*There may be more than one person with the same name.
 +
*You ancestor may be using a nickname or alias.
 +
*Even though there is an index there may still be inaccuracies, such as altered spellings, misinterpretations, and optical character recognition errors if the information was scanned.  
  
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.

'''View  images in this collection by visiting the [https://familysearch.org/search/image/index#uri=https://familysearch.org/recapi/sord/collection/2046777/waypoints Browse Page]:'''<br> To search the collection you will need to follow this series of links:<br>

⇒ Select the "Record Type and Year" category which takes you to the images<br>
  
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:

For marriage and death records, name changes, shortened names, or nicknames may have been used by your ancestors, so pay attention to other relationships (parents, spouse, siblings, children, etc.) that can confirm whether you have the right person/record.

Witnesses were sometimes relatives of the deceased or the deceased's parents.
  
When you copy information from a record, you should list where you found the information. This will help you or others to find the record again. It is also good to keep track of records where you did not find information, including the names of the people you looked for in the records.  
+
When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.  
  
A suggested format for keeping track of records that you have searched is found in the wiki article [[Help:How to Cite FamilySearch Collections]].  
+
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.

What Do I Do Next?

I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now?

For death records, the information in records is usually reliable, but depends upon the knowledge of the informant.

For marriage and death records, name changes, shortened names, or nicknames may have been used by your ancestors, so pay attention to other relationships (parents, spouse, siblings, children, etc.) that can confirm whether you have the right person/record.

Witnesses were sometimes relatives of the deceased or the deceased's parents.

When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.

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.

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.

I Can't Find Who I'm Looking for, What Now?

If you are unable to find your ancestor(s) in these civil registers, then try searching in the areas surrounding Cajamarca. These regions neighbor Cajamarca:

  • Equador and Piura on the North,
  • Amazonias on the East,
  • La Libertad on the South, and
  • Lambayeque on the West

Your ancestor may have immigrated to another country. Search the records of nearby areas or immigration/emigration records.

Church records are also a good substitute when birth, marriage, and death records can’t be found or are unavailable. Before the government instituted civil registration in Peru, the Catholic Church was the only institution tracking the births, marriages, and deaths of the population.
