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.
