What Do I Do Next?Edit

I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?Edit

  • After finding the person in the index, be sure and look at the actual deed
  • Search for vital records, such as birth, marriage, and death
  • Search for the family in census records
  • Search for probate records
  • Search for other family members in the land records

I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now?Edit

  • 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, or even initials
