Begin your search by finding your ancestors in the index. Name indexes to baptisms, marriages, and death or burials make it possible to access a specific record quickly. Remember that these indexes may contain inaccuracies, such as altered spellings, misinterpretations, and optical character recognition errors if the information was scanned.  
+
== How Do I Search the Collection?  ==
 +
Before searching, it is best to know the following:
 +
*Name of the person
 +
*Year of the record
 +
As you search, look for a record which matches this information.
  
'''When searching the index it is helpful to know the following:'''
