- Compile the entries for every person who has the same surname; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual

Repeat this process for each new generation you identify
- When looking for a person who had 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]
