Notes

"The major collections include books, microfilms, and microfiche of original records and secondary sources from the United States and Canada, the British Isles, Scandinavia, Central Europe, Mexico and Central America, and South America. There are noteworthy collections for Australia and the South Pacific, South Africa, and the Caribbean-countries that became home to untold numbers of British emigrants. This volume discusses the Family History Library's collection for each of the countries within these geographic areas. It also covers the outstanding collection of sources for Latter-day Saints...The Family History Library's holdings include something for nearly every country in the world"--Pref.

This book "is designed to assist the genealogical community in using the library's major collections and its branches"--Pref.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
