Title: Batch numbers for I.G.I. & other stuff
Post by: J.J. on Thursday 19 October 06 23:39 BST (UK)
Not a only Canada resource, so putting it on here...it may come in handy for some of you.  Even misnomers are included on his listings...

Hello all, I thought I'd put this up here in case someone wants a back door into the I.G.I... ( U.K.) You can use it directly, by going to the town, click on a parish listing and putting in the surname...
Database by Hugh Wallis:
for Canada http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hughwallis/IGIBatchNumbersNA/CountryCanada.htm
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~hughwallis/

Or you can just copy the batch numbers and paste them into the batch# box on the I.G.I., and put the surname (or whole name of course) and it will only search that parish/town...(within that certain year span & category, thus referring to above)

also you can search for info by place name right on the LDS site :

misc. the IGI batch number for 694 births at sea  C014037

Happy hunting!!!! ::)

There's always room for Resources of interest, so will add this..
It's from Chester, Eng. but probably covers a great deal of the economy
type of business, as well as names of occupations for many areas within this period....at the very least you'll find it most interesting...
