How Do I Analyze the Results?[edit | edit source]

Compare each result from your search with what you know to determine if there is a match. This may require viewing multiple records or images. Keep track of your research in a research log.

What Do I Do Next?[edit | edit source]

I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Copy down all the information from the index entry.
  • Cite the record. See below for assistance citing this collection.
  • Use what you have found to find more. For instance, use the age at death to estimate a year of birth, if you have not found that yet.

I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking for, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • When looking for a person with a common name, look at all the results for the name before deciding which individual is correct. Use other information, such as place of birth, age, occupation, or names of parents, to determine which entry relates to the correct person. If listed, a personal title may be a clue to property ownership or occupation, either of which might be noted in other records.
  • Check for variations of given names and surnames. An individual might have been listed under a middle name. Simple misspellings could also happen.
  • Vary the search terms. For example, expand the date range or search by either the given name or surname to return broader list of search results.
