Hi all,

I've just found a marriage for my ancestors on the IGI which has only been submitted by a member of the LDS Church. There is a Batch number, a sheet number and a source call number. Can anyone tell me please how I find the details of the member that submitted the info?

Thank you. :)

You can check the LDS Ancestral File (http://www.familysearch.org/eng/search/frameset_search.asp?PAGE=af/search_AF.asp&clear_form=true), in case the same record is entered there with the submitter's contact details. If it isn't, you can email LDS to ask, but they may not be able to tell you :(

Taking another tack, if the church/chapel is named, you could try to get the entry checked at the relevant record office.

If the entry looks feasible ie it shows a full date and doesn't include the words "of" or "about", the best thing to chase the original register, if it's identifiable.
