I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]
- Use the birth date or year to search for birth records
- Search for the family in census records
- Use the locality and relative's name to locate church and land records
- The name of the undertaker or mortuary could lead you to funeral and cemetery records, which often include the names and residences of other family members
- Compile the entries for every person with the same surname. This is especially helpful for rural areas or unusual surnames
- Continue to search the records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the deceased who may have been buried in the same cemetery or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify
- When looking for a person with a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct
I Can't Find the Person I'm Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]
