Family History - I.G.I. (International Genealogical Index).

The I.G.I. is an index of parish records (baptisms, marriages, and deaths) worldwide, recorded by the church of latter day saints - the Mormons. It has hundreds of millions of entries spanning many centuries, and is a great research aid to the family historian.

The index is available on microfiche and on CD at most archives. The index for the UK is split up into its countries and islands, and further by county. The index is said to contain many errors (the transcribers were only human), and information that you find using the index should be verified with the relevant parish records.

The I.G.I. is also online on the LDS site here.
