== Collection Time Period ==

== Record Description ==
  
This index covers events from 1560 through 1900.  
+
This index is an electronic index for the years 1563 to 1890.  
  
== Record Description ==
+
It is not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records. This index is not complete for any particular place or region. This collection may include information previously published in the International Genealogical Index or Vital Records Index collections.
  
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:
+
=== Citation For This Collection  ===
* Family Records
+
* Church Records
+
* Civil Registration
+
  
It may also include indexes generated by the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church.
+
The following citation refers to the original source of the information for collections published in FamilySearch.org. Source citations include the author, custodian, publisher and archive for the original records.  
  
There may be entries that cite a specific source such as the following:
+
{{Collection citation | text= "Belgium, Marriages, 1563-1890" Index. <i>FamilySearch</i>. http://FamilySearch.org : accessed 2013. Index based upon data collected by the Genealogical Society of Utah, Salt Lake City.}}
* "Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850: a Family Register for the People" by James Arnold
+
* “Paul Dingwell Genealogical Collection” by Paul Dingwell
+
* A county or state vital record registration
+
  
These entries are in this collection for one of the following reasons:
+
== Record Content and Use  ==
1. They were submitted by private individuals to the LDS Church and as such are part of the IGI resulting in their inclusion in this index.
+
2. They have been indexed through the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church. If this is the case, the index they are a part of has been included as part of this database.
+
  
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.
