  1. I have located a vast genealogical collection which I have reason to believe contains much information on my ancestors based upon the indices that I have obtained from LDS HQ in Salt Lake City. But, therein lies the problem: I have ordered several reels of microfilm related to the volumes from this collection, but that’s all I get–indices–indices to the various volumes and indices to a surname index. How do I obtain the microfilm that will display the actual pages of text? The collection of 15 volumes is entitled: O’Kief,Coshe Mang, Slieve Lougher, and Upper Blackwater in Ireland and was compiled by Albert E. Casey. The Call No. is 941.5 D2c Index. Perhaps the compilation consists only of indexed references to public and church records based in the part of Ireland being covered. In that case, could these references have been picked up by LDS and transferred to the IGI? I would appreciate any enlightenment you can provide.

  2. I heard that someone went searching on the site and saw something that said if they wanted to view records or something they could PAY $3.99 a month or something to that effect.

    Also I would like to know why the Cook County birth and marriage records which had images 2 years ago are no longer available WITH the records and they are now only the index. I have a lot of family that are or were from Cook County and specifically Chicago and those images helped me a great deal to fill in some blanks. I’d like to know why they were removed since they were a great resource, not that the index isn’t.

    Thanks

  3. Please notify me if You plan (and when You plan) to update Polish Browsable Image Collection. In the past, I used to borrow microfilms through local Family History Centers, so I know that You had a substantial collection of microfilmed Polish church books. Unfortunately, only some of these microfilmed records are available on-line.
    Thank you for replying

    1. PM, as of right now I don’t know about updating the Polish Browsable Image Collection. I have sent your comment to someone who may know. I will keep you informed.
