  • Event type such as baptism or marriage
  • Event date and place
  • Birth, death or burial dates and places
  • Parent's names
  • Names of other family members
  • Names of witnesses
  • Places of residence
  • Relationships
  • Occupations

How Do I Search the Collection?[edit | edit source]

  • The date of the event or the name of a parent or spouse

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.

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

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

  • Cite the record just in case you need to find it later. See below for help citing this collection.
  • Use the age or estimated birth date to find other church and vital records such as birth, baptism, marriage, and death records. (Make sure that if it’s a marriage article, you take the word marriage out, if it’s a birth article, take the word birth out, etc.)
  • Use the information found in the record to find land, probate and immigration records.
  • Use the information found in the record to find additional family members in censuses. Witnesses were usually family members.
  • Repeat this process with additional family members found, to find more generations of the family.
  • Church Records were kept years before counties began keeping records. They are a good source for finding ancestors before 1900.

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

  • Indexes and transcriptions may not include all the data found in the original records. You could get a copy of the original record from the Zion Evangelical United Church of Christ, Indianapolis.
  • 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. Try searching for these names as well.
  • Check the info box above for additional FamilySearch websites and related websites that may assist you in finding similar records.
