Forum: IGI

Information about the International Genealogical Index (IGI).

  1. Arrow Sticky Thread Sticky: The IGI - some clarification - please read

    The IGI is an index of the ordinances (baptism, sealing & endowment) of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and when used as such is 100% accurate. It is not an index of parish registers even though genealogists use it as such. Hopefully, this explanation of the information that...

  1. LDS Microfilm distribution to cease

    I admit that I haven't been to a LDS FHC and ordered a film for quite a few years now but that's mainly because I either haven't been doing any research or else the I've found the information (or more importantly, the parish registers) online. Even so, reading that as from 1 September this year...

  4. Always double check

    I know that many people rely upon the IGI for their research, but as the vast majority of my research is in Wales, I have always treated it with great caution, because of it's "blanket policy" of assuming that up to a certain date that patronymic naming applies across the board, and this is just...

  5. Two issues - help please!

    I jotted down a reference for a baptism at St Leonard's, Broseley, Shropshire, film source 992079, for Peter Garbett 1823 but before I could note his father's name I lost the record and despite hours of searching I cannot find it. I'm going crazy. Similarly, I am trying to research his...

  6. Using Familysearch on iPad?

    Does anyone else have a great amount of trouble using the new Familysearch on iPad? It takes about 5 minutes for me to process a search and get results, it is so painfully slow. The old site ran perfectly, updated..nothing. Haven't been able to use it for ages as I only have an iPad. Any...

  8. Problem searching

    Is anyone having problems with familysearch today? I've just gone on to the site and it will only let me enter the name of the person I'm looking for. If I click on birth/marriage etc. nothing 'opens' up where you can usually put birth year/place. When I click on 'search' a message comes up...

  10. Differences between parish registers and IGI

    I recently obtained some transcriptions on CD and have found in a couple of instances that the transcriptions differ slightly from what is on the IGI. In both cases I also got a photograph of the relevant page in the parish registers and the entries are not quite legible. I was thinking of now...

  11. Website for IGI batch numbers

    A chap called Steve Archer has created a separate database for IGI batch numbers and included some that were not listed by Hugh Wallace. The site is free to use and can be found at www.archersoftware.co.uk/igi/. The home page is very helpful with guidance, a map and drop down menus. There is also...

  12. Understanding IGI Batch Numbers

    Hmmm I am searching for the baptism of an Elizabeth Hugh(e)s in St Mary Lambeth early 1800's. Old Familysearch has one in 1802 but the batch number looks odd - it is I048655 rather than beginning with a C which I am more used to. Is this significant? when I tried to find the baptism in the...

  13. Unhappy FamilySearch coverage

    Apologies if this topic has been covered - I did search on the forum, but may have overlooked a posting. A genealogical magazine I was reading recently stated that "the new site doesn't have coverage for Suffolk yet". I started wondering if there is a list anywhere of which English counties (or...

  14. New(ish) Version of FamilySearch

    Does everyone like this new version, or is it just me that has trouble? Even with the advanced search option I seem to get loads of results that I don't want. For instance I might want a birth/baptism record and amongst some baptisms I get census from various years. I have a subscription to FMP...

  15. Identifying church

    Is it possible to identify which church IGI records relate to? I've found an entry for a baptism in Rye in 1881, but I can't find a way of seeing where the baptism took place. Is one to just assume it was the parish church? I'm guessing there is more than one possible church in Rye? David

  17. Confusion

    I have been trying to find the parents of one Richard POTER or POTTER and have two IGI references that I don't understand. One states that he was born 'about 1714 ... of Stretton' and the spouse's name is 'unavailable'. (Ref 537960) That leads to 'endowments for the dead, 1877-1970' etc. which...

  20. Question Submitted Parish Record on the IGI

    There are on Family Search, a batch of submitted parish record marriages from St. Mary at Lambeth which have neither a specific date or bride's surname. I cannot find the marriage it lists on Ancestry parish records so am dubious it exists. It's a marriage of a John Jones to Sarah 1792 St. Mary...
