I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Use the age to calculate the birth date to find other records such as birth, christening, marriage, census, and death records.
  • Use the probate date as a substitute death date.
  • Use the name of the undertaker, mortuary, or cemetery to find funeral and cemetery records.
  • Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
  • Use the occupations to find employment or military records.
  • Use the information to find additional family members.
  • Repeat this process with additional family members found, to find more generations of the family.
  • Church Records often were kept years before government records were required and are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900.

I Can’t Find Who I’m Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • If your ancestor does not have a common name, collect entries for every person who has the same surname. This list can help you find possible relatives.
  • If you cannot locate your ancestor in the locality in which you believe they lived, then try searching records of a nearby town or county.
  • Try different spellings of your ancestor’s name.
  • Remember that sometimes individuals went by nicknames or alternated between using first and middle names. Try searching for these names as well.
  • Check the info box above for additional FamilySearch websites and related websites that may assist you in finding similar records.
