== For Help Reading the Records ==
These records are in German. For help reading the records, see the following wiki articles:
*Use the estimated age to calculate a birth date.
*Use the soldier's age and location of the military unit to find his family in census, church, and land records.
*Use the county code and the certificate number to obtain a copy of the original death certificate from the county.
== Tips to Keep in Mind ==
*When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct. *Titles may be clues to property ownership, occupations, rank, or status within the community. *Be aware that errors may have occurred at the time the records were made.
== What if I Can't Find Who I'm Looking For? ==
*Check for variant spellings of the names.
*Look for an index. There are often indexes at the beginning of each volume. In addition local genealogical and historical societies often have indexes to local records.
*Search the records of nearby localities (or military units, counties, parishes, etc.).
