Image Visibility[edit | edit source]

Whenever possible FamilySearch makes images and indexes available for all users. However, rights to view these data are limited by contract and subject to change. Because of this there may be limitations on where and how images and indexes are available or who can see them. Please be aware some collections consist only of partial information indexed from the records and do not contain any images.

For additional information about image restrictions see Restrictions for Viewing Images in FamilySearch Historical Record Collections.

Before searching this index it is helpful to know:

  • Name of the individual
  • Approximate date and or location of the event

Search the Index[edit | edit source]

You will be able to search this collection when it is published.

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]

If these are indexes, the original records may contain additional information than was not indexed, or the information might have been indexed incorrectly. You may want to search for the original record.

I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Search for vital records such as birth, marriage, and death
  • Search for burial information in newspapers
  • Use the information found in the record to find land and property
  • Use the information found in the record to find probate records
  • Use the information found in the record to find naturalization and citizenship records, if applicable
  • Use the information found in the record to find additional family members in census records

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

  • 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 in a nearby locality
  • Try different spellings of your ancestor’s name
  • Remember that sometimes individuals went by nicknames or alternated between using first and middle names, or even initials

Record Finder[edit | edit source]

Consult the South Dakota Research Tips and Strategies and its Record Finder to search other records.
