Research Process

  1. Find your assigned names on the Assignment Sheet
  2. For each of your names, open the link under “Find a Grave Link” (the YELLOW column)
  3. If the search returns one result:
    • Confirm that it is the correct individual by comparing the name, city, state and date of death with the data on the Assignment Sheet
  4. If the search returns more than one result:
    • Determine if one of the results is the correct individual by comparing the name, city, state and date of death with the data on the Assignment Sheet
  5. If the search returns no results:
    • Click “Refine Search” to edit your search, and try the following searches, in the order below:
      • the individual’s first INITIAL only, then last name, year of death, and state
      • ONLY the individual’s last name, year of death, and state
      • the individual’s full name and year of death, but change the location to “United States of America” (not a state)
      • You can also try common sense variations on name spellings (e.g. Anderson vs Andersen, etc.)
      • You can also look at the Burial City Map – If an individual was sent to a community near a state border, he/she might have been buried in the adjacent state.
  6. WHETHER OR NOT you find the individual on Find a Grave, go to the Data Entry Form
    • Enter your name, and select the individual’s name
    • Follow the prompts to complete the entry
  7. Go on to your next assigned name on the Assignment Sheet (REPEAT FROM STEP 1)
