"Extracted birth or christening record for the locality listed in the
record. The source records are usually arranged chronologically by the
birth or christening date."
Then presumably there's a propr batch number but is there a "Source Call
No." stated, may I ask?
Some recent additions to the IGI do not, thus reducing the value of the
entry to something approaching zero.
Just a Batch Number C010185
I think being worth "something approaching zero" is a slight exaggeration.
I have found my Great Grandmother's date of birth and christening. A
photocopy is on the way to me from the Record Office.
I have been trying to find this for about seven years. It was difficult
because her mother was Irish-Canadian married in Quebec to a soldier
from Yorkshire. A brother was born in Quebec in about 1845. Her mother
was in Yorkshire in the 1851 Census and after then. Two censuses giver
place of birth as Chester and Cheshire, others give various other
places, the date of birth from census age also varies and she died young
so does not appear in many censuses.
I have previously had a professional researcher try to find the birth
but he could not find it.
So without the IGI it is quite likely I would not have found the dates
and location, hardly of no value.
