General Research Tips Success with birth, marriage and death records depends on a few key points.

  • If your ancestor has a common name, extra reference points in the search query improve search options and success.
  • Find your ancestor in each available census.
  • Use indexes, but if the image is available, always look at the image to verify accuracy and see information not indexed.
  • Where a person lived can be a great help to group individuals into their correct families.
  • Dates in a person's life will point to various options for learning more about them. Even approximate dates for birth, marriage and death can help.
  • Find at least two documents from independent sources to verify what you learn.
  • Use maps - doing genealogy without a map is like painting with your eyes shut.
