The camera icon with a key above it means

Access the site at a family history center.
Access the site at a FamilySearch affiliate library.

The plain one means you can access it there and then, at least I could a week ago, as I have not been on FS for a week, doing too much FindMyPast and Ancestry instead.

Thanks Erato & Coombs for your explanations of the Camera Icons. 

Unfortunately Family Search doesn't play by the same rules  ::)

From this link (as previously mentioned)
https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/list/?fcs=region%3AUNITED_KINGDOM_IRELAND&ec=region%3AUNITED_KINGDOM_IRELAND

These are a couple of MANY examples where the camera is shown but access is limited

England Essex Non-Conformists Church Records 1613 - 1971
England Hertfordshire Marriage Bonds 1682 - 1837

If anyone has the answer to how access may be gained to these databases from home, I, for one, would be thrilled to the tips of my little toes.  ;D

Thanks for checking for the images ellvera

Good point about being logged in, easy trap to fall into (Yes, I am logged in  :D )

Unfortunately I have just rechecked both specific collections listed and neither are showing images for me.

Thanks for checking Neale1961 - I have no idea why some can and some can't see images.  ???

Add: The Essex Non Conformists collection shows transcripts from Zamb้zia, Mozambique to Yorkshire ... with a few in Essex thrown in for good measure   8)

Thanks for confirming that it's not only me Jool

Looks like Family search has a LOT more work to do. It will be wonderful when/if they are able to provide those images as per the listings.

Well, they do provide them for free but you have to go to one of their family history centers.  That could be inconvenient for many people but, all in all, it is more generous than selling them for profit.  As it happens, there is a family history center in Quito but I've never visited it.  Probably something like "England, Essex Non-Conformist Church Records, 1613-1971" would have to be ordered on microfilm because there wouldn't be much demand for it here.

Thanks for your comments Erato. It's interesting to read the different interpretations of the 3 cameras - ie a plain camera, a Camera with a key and the camera with the box around it.

The camera icon with a key above it means

Access the site at a family history center.
Access the site at a FamilySearch affiliate library.

The plain one means you can access it there and then, at least I could a week ago, as I have not been on FS for a week, doing too much FindMyPast and Ancestry instead.


I do think it's amazing just how many records/films have been made freely available by LDS. I think they've done a brilliant job and I certainly appreciate the work done.

I'll look forward to any updates.
