== How to Use the Record  ==
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 the “Record” <br>⇒Select the “County” <br>⇒Select the “Volume and Year” 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.
It is often helpful to extract the information on all children with the same parents. If the surname is unusual, you may want to compile baptism entries for every person of the same surname and sort them into families based on the names of the parents. Continue to search the baptism records to identify siblings, parents, and other relatives in the same or other generations who were born, married, and died in the same place or nearby.
'''Keep in mind:'''
*The information in church records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant.
*Earlier records may not contain as much information as the records created after the late 1800s.
*There is also some variation in the information given from record to record.
