Endowment index (Medieval), 1846-1969

Manuscript/Manuscript on Film
Salt Lake City, Utah : Filmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah, 1975, 1979
33 microfilm reels ; 16 mm.


Microfilm erroneously entitled "Medieval Given Name Catalog."

A card index to proxy endowments performed between 1846 and 1969 in L.D.S. temples for persons living primarily from 900-1500 A.D. Contains some records persons living between 500 B.C. and 900 A.D.

The film is arranged in two alphabetical sections: persons with given names only, and persons with surnames and given names. When two or more persons have identical names, the cards are filed in order by birthdate or, when possible, by other identifying dates.

Similar spellings of surnames are filmed together under "standard" spellings." Not all surnames thus grouped together are variations of the same surname, but because of their similarity are filed together. Cross-reference cards are filed under the acutal spelling to refer to the standard spelling.

Compound surnames (with or without hyphens) are filed as one word. Names beginning with prefixes (de, von, etc.) are sometimes, but not always, combined under standard spellings.

Dynastic and locality names (de Bourbon, de Austria, etc.) may be filed as surnames.

Variations of some of the most common given names have been grouped together under a standard spelling, within each surname. A list of these standard spellings for given names is provided "Given Name Combinations Catalog" filmed at the beginning of each roll.

A second given name or initial is ignored in filing. Also, titles of nobility are regarded in the filing.

The identity of the source materials for this information can not be readily determined. The information is often meager or possibly erroneous. In addition, persons may have submitted a variant transliteration or translation of a foreign name. This has resulted in many duplicate entries.

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 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.


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.
