There is a description at that includes some codes not mentioned on this page. Is there anyone that can comment on the legitimacy of these additional codes?


T000001-T000011 Manual 110 year file from Family Group Records Collection, Archive Section

T000011-T000136 Temple Index Bureau (TIB) conversion

All digit numbers (except those listed specifically below)
Submitted Individual Entry forms, Marriage Entry forms, and family group records.
"Individual Entry forms" may contain death dates, father's occ., source(s) of info., submitter's name, address, and relationship. "Marriage Entry forms" may contain a couple's ages, names of parents, indication of whether the wife was a widow, source(s) of info., submitter's name, address, and relationship.
"Family group records", see "F***" above.
The first two numbers referr to the year the record was received in SLC, the next three numbers are the day of the year (i.e. 035 would be the 4th of Feb.), and the last two numbers are the mail batch that the entry was in on that day.

754**** = Special extraction projects (New Hampshire index to births)

These are all real batch numbers and the explanations given at are accurate. See Laureen R. Jaussi and Gloria D. Chaston, Register of Genealogical Society Call Numbers, vol. 1 (Provo, Utah: Genealogy Tree, 1982), 2-16 to 2-18 or the old handout "Tracing the Source of IGI Batch Numbers" for verification.
