*Save or print a copy of the image or record, if possible. The original may contain information that was not recorded in the index
*Use the information which you have found to estimate ages in other life events. For example, use a christening date to approximate a marriage date, or a burial record to calculate an estimated year of birth
*Use the information you have found to find the person and families in census records
*Continue to search the index to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives. Note that family members often appear on an individual's records, such as in the role of witnesses to a marriage
=== I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now? ===
*When looking for an individual with a common name, look at all the search results before deciding which is the correct person
*If your ancestor does not have a common name, collect entries for every person who has the same surname
*When you search baptismal records, remember that it was not unusual for a child to be baptized weeks or even months after birth
*Note that marriages often took place in the parish where the bride resided
