=== I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now? ===
 
*Try viewing the original record to see if there were errors in the transcription of the name, age, residence, etc
 
*Search the records of nearby localities (or military units, counties, parishes, etc.)
 
*Standard spelling of names typically did not exist during the periods our ancestors lived in. Try variations of your ancestor’s name while searching the index or browsing through images. *Remember that sometimes individuals went by [http://usgenweb.org/research/nicknames.html nicknames] or alternated between using first and middle names. Try searching for [http://genealogy.about.com/od/first_names/fl/nickname-given-name-equivalents.htm these names] as well
 
*Look for an index. There are often indexes at the beginning of each volume. In addition local genealogical and historical societies often have indexes to local records
*Consult the [[Austria Record Finder]] to find other record
