== How to Use the Record ==
+
== Related Websites ==
  
Use this file to help you learn more about your ancestors. 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.
+
[http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~idgenweb/ Idaho GenWeb Project]
 
+
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:
+
 
+
*[[IGI]]
+
*[[IGI Batch Number Descriptions]]
+
*[[IGI Batch Numbers for the British Isles and North America]]
+
 
+
If an FHL film number is given in the entry for your ancestor, search for it in the [https://www.familysearch.org/#form=catalog&catSearchType=film_number Family History Library Catalog].
+
 
+
== Record History  ==
+
 
+
For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. In 1998, a few of the entries were published on 7 CDs by the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the "North America Vital Records Index." This is an index of some births and christenings throughout Idaho. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region.
+
 
+
=== Why This Record Was Created  ===
+
 
+
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing to accomplish its program of identifying the ancestry of mankind.  
+
 
+
=== Record Reliability  ===
+
 
+
Church records and civil registration were official sources and are some of the most reliable sources of information available on those who were born, married, or died in Idaho.
