Re: Thomas Hunter
- Hello Annie:
Thank you for replying to my posting.
I stand corrected. Please forgive me.
It was remiss of me to describe the St Helena IGI data on the Family
search site as parish records. To be truthful - I have admit that I
do not know the origins of the primary records. I suspect that most
of them were obtained, for religeous reasons, by representatives of
the Mormon Church, from the Bishops Transcrips and not the St
Helena Parish registers.
In this instance my main intention was to pass on, to other
researchers, a tip about the usefulness of the batch number
facility. In the case of the St Helena data, it proved helpful to me
use it to structure the family groupings in alphabetical order, thus
allowing me to identify siblings whose existance and first name
were not previously known to me.
Personally I know that I will never be able to visit the archives to
see the primary sources and I very much appreciate the the
generosity of the Church of Latter Day Saints in making this data
available to family history reserchers worldwide on microfich and on
the family Search website.
