Grenada IGI Batch NumbersEdit This Page

From FamilySearch Wiki

Contents

Overview

Use the Batch Number search tool if you are looking for births, baptisms, marriages, deaths or burials on microfilms of the various civil and church records of Grenada and want a quick alphabetical index to all the individuals recorded there.

Since 1974, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been extracting records of births/baptisms and marriages from filmed records in its collection for Grenada. Most of these extracted records are indexed by name in the International Genealogical Index (IGI) available on www.familysearch.org. Every group of extracted records has been assigned a batch number. If you know the batch number of an extracted film for a parish you are interested in (perhaps obtained from a record previously found indexed on FamilySearch.org), you can do a search on www.familysearch.org for just that batch number and the results will be ALL of the extracted names from that record, in alphabetical order. This is a great aid to researchers for locating family members and other associated relatives.

To do this, follow these steps:

  • Go to www.familysearch.org.
  • Under "Restrict records by:" click on Batch Number.
  • Enter your batch number in the search field that appears.
  • The search results should be a list of all enties in that batch of records, in alphabetical order by name.

Indexes to Batch Numbers

The LDS has organised the records in the IGI into 'batches'. Batches can sometimes contain records from more than one town, parish, or church.

What follows is an outline on records on each FHL microfilm for Grenada by locality and by batch number. Ric Greaves has done much of the work to organized the batch numbers for each parish in Grenada, so that you can easily see which batches and time periods are available for the area you are researching.  A basic attempts has also been made to included batches that are not, as yet, on the FamilySearch website.

Using the IGI Site

Using the FamilySearch you can now, even select the parish you are interested in (under State or Province). Note that the State "Other" actually refers to Carriacou. From this menu you can also to to narrow your search by restricting your records using one of the following:

  • Location
  • Type
  • Batch Number
  • Film Number

Note: the range of batch and film numbers available to search online for Grenada are currently small and you will not be able to find much online compared to viewing the films directly at a FHC.

After 1991, LDS member submission information was not recorded, so all one has is the name and date information, the film containing the temple record shows little more than what you see on the IGI entry for the individual.

Record Content

The batches numbers are for extracted civil and church containing birth, christening and marriage records. Batch numbers relate to records extracted (indexed) for the International Genealogical Index (IGI). Each batch number relates to a specific record and range of years. Knowing more information about what is included in a batch may be helpful for continuing your research.

Knowing the range of years covered by a particular IGI batch number may help you better understand what data may or may not be indexed in the IGI.

The Parish and Vital Records Index available on microfiche at family history centers has been used to identify what records have been indexed for the IGI. Presently this index is an electronic index for the years 1866 to 1891. [1]

A Christening record' may contain:

  • Father
  • Mother
  • Name (of the child)
  • Gender
  • Birth Date
  • Birthplace (parish-name, Grenada)
  • Father's Name
  • Mother's Name
  • Indexing Project (Batch) Number I02552-7
  • GS Film number 1523169
  • Reference ID

Currently the transcriptions are birth records and so the Christening Date and Christening Place nor Death Date are not yet incuded on the IGI for Grenada.

Marriage records, Death records, Burial records and Land records for Grenada are not included on the IGI.


Note: A general query on the film numbers for Grenada will declare there are a very large number of records (40,811 for 1523169), however you’ll see from the tabulation below that there are actually a total of only 14944 on the corresponding film.

Film Number 1523204

Family History Library (FHL) film number 1523204 is a continuation copy of parts of the Civil Register of Births from all seven parishes for the years 1891 to 1905, currently with no corresponding to batch numbers for this film.

Sadly at the moment the following is one of seven films for Grenada that have not been transcribed. The decision for this may have been because several or the original pages being filmed in 1974 were in extreme state of decay (even though they are not altogether that old). See this example from Birth Civil Record August 1897, St. Patrick's, Grenada.


This an image is one of the better fragments of the pages from the Grenada Civil Register for the year from the late 1890s.
