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 that can lead you to other records about your ancestors. Add this new information to your records of each family.  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 1800's.
 +
*There is also some variation in the information given from one record to another.

*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records.
 +
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate other church and land records.
 +
*Occupations listed can lead you to other types of records such as employment or military records.
 +
*Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
 +
*The name of the officiator is a clue to their religion or area of residence in the county. However, ministers may have reported marriages performed in other counties.
 +
*Compile information for every person who has the same surname as your ancestor; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
 +
*Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives 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.

*Civil registration records are also a good source of genealogical information.  See [[Uruguay Civil Registration|Uruguay Civil Registration]] for further information.  You should obtain copies of both church records and civil registration, when possible, since they do not necessarily provide the same information. For example, baptismal registers sometimes provide the names of the fathers of illegitimate children when the civil registration does not.

What Do I Do Next?

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 that can lead you to other records about your ancestors. Add this new information to your records of each family. 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 1800's.
  • There is also some variation in the information given from one record to another.

I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now?

  • Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records.
  • Use the residence and names of the parents to locate other church and land records.
  • Occupations listed can lead you to other types of records such as employment or military records.
  • Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
  • The name of the officiator is a clue to their religion or area of residence in the county. However, ministers may have reported marriages performed in other counties.
  • Compile information for every person who has the same surname as your ancestor; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
  • Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives 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.

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

  • Civil registration records are also a good source of genealogical information. See Uruguay Civil Registration for further information. You should obtain copies of both church records and civil registration, when possible, since they do not necessarily provide the same information. For example, baptismal registers sometimes provide the names of the fathers of illegitimate children when the civil registration does not.
  • There may be more than one person with the same name.
  • You ancestor may be using a nickname or alias.
  • Even though this is an index there may still be inaccuracies, such as altered spellings, misinterpretations, and optical character recognition errors if the information was scanned.
  • A boundary change could have occurred and the record of your ancestor is now in a neighboring area. Search the records and indexes of neighboring cities, provinces, and regions.
  • Your ancestor may have immigrated to another country. Search the records of nearby countries or immigration/emigration records.
