This index is an electronic database of information. The entries are primarily from the IGI along with some entries derived from compiled and original records such as:

This Collection will include records from 1645 to 1930.  
  
*Family Records

The collection's index is not complete for any particular place or region and may include information previously published in the International Genealogical Index or Vital Records Index collections.
*Church Records
+
*Civil Registration

It may also include indexes generated by the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church.

Children were generally baptized within a few days of birth. Baptismal records usually give the place and date of baptism and birth, infant's name and parents' names. If the child died within a few days of baptism, the death information may also be included.  
  
There may be entries that cite a specific source such as the following:

The Vital Record Index databases are not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records although some sub-indexes (an index to a set of records within the database) have been found. When we identify a sub-index, we remove it from the database and post it separately on FamilySearch under its appropriate title.

== How to Use the Record  ==
+
 
+
The information could help you identify family relationships and lineages as well as direct you to original records of your ancestors, which may contain additional information.
+
 
+
Depending on the time period and place there may not be a surname listed in the original records. When that happened, the indexer often assigned a surname based on the father's surname which may not be correct. So if you are looking for a birth/christening, search by the given name of the child, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.
+
 
+
=== Finding the Original Source for an Entry in This Collection  ===

+
Each entry in this index has a source listed which includes a batch number. You will need to trace the batch number for the individual entry to learn its source. Please see the following wiki articles for more information on batch numbers:
