What are some key indicators that a record in ancestry belongs to a specific person?
Hello readers! I'm trying to find a record for an ancestor so she can be sealed to her parents. In family search, it doesn't show who her parents are. Anyways, I've been searching for a record of her christening. I found one for a person with a similar name, that was slightly different. It was also 2 years after the year that family search says this ancestor was born. But the place where the christening took place is only a 12 minute drive (in a modern car) from the place where my ancestor was born, whereas many of the other christening records in ancestry of people with similar names took place much farther away. So I'm hoping that this could be the correct record, but I'm still unsure.
So I'm wondering, what are some key indicators that a record in ancestry belongs to a specific person in family search? It's hard sometimes to feel confident in choosing a record, especially when the christening record is from two years after family search records that my ancestor was born.
