These entries are in this collection for one of the following reasons:

+
*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.

*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.

So if you are looking for a baptism search by the given name of the child, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.
