This is well worth finding and checking out as for years I did it the hard way!  The batch numbers are great and thanks to Hugh.  The more resources for family history the better as it helps us to connect quicker, as we are time limited!

Another good and very useful site.

But note that some batches are missing.  For example, Batch C023119 (Extracted Christening records, Patching, SSX) has been invaluable in my research.  But the Hugh Wallis site fails to list it.  The only batch it gives for Patching is one for marriages.

Oh Boy! This has great promise, thanks to whoever Hugh Wallis is, if he reads Rootsweb, for what must have been hours of work.

Yes the Hugh wallis pages are invaluable.  He should have 6 starts immediately if he joined RootsChat!

It is worth reading his preamble about teh coverage of his "links".  There are more records on the IGI on Family Search which are not included here - in particular those which have been submitted by Mormon Church members; the reliability of these church submitted records are sadly mixed.

That was very helpful.  I was able to fill in a lot of siblings without tons of hunting and pecking.

If your results are too numerous to go through...save time by taking the batch number back to the Family search site and putting it into the IGI batch numbers box with the name of the parents in the initial listing, and it will give you the other results from the parish without having to peruse all within your decades of search. ( leave out mother's surname if no results, as we all know how important that was to the entry  ::)  :P ) Those of you with the surname Smith to search will appreciate the time saving, I am sure...
Trouble is, sometimes only the mother or father are listed, so you may have to try only father and then only mother, & the results may not be yours...also, as we all know, sometimes each child was born in a differnt parish..but then, that's OUR problem... ;D

It is a great site although not complete...but the above information should rectify that. Thanks Hugh Wallis, for sharing!   J.J.


p.s. this also works for your results for all submissions on the site, in case you didn't know...

oops, seems this isn't always so, as I just did some searches for Ireland where the extracted files came from batch numbers that coincided with the year not the area where born so the system has its inconsistancies...

 


alas, haven't one extracted listing with full forename & surname as yet  :'(
