CAVEAT: Just because you find
information on the web (or anywhere) which purports to be correct, as secondary
or tertiary information, it should be considered unreliable until you actually
verify the information. Even in cases where you find data in the
very reliable LDS IGI database where it indexes an official church or state
document, it is always possible that a transcription error crept into the
work. Even if you do trust what is in such an index, that database
is just that, an Index and as such cannot conceivably contain all the information
available by viewing the original document.

This is the LDS (Mormon) Family History website so often heard of in
the media lately. Their online databases include information submitted
by others as well as indexed data extracted from official church/state
records from around the globe. In addition, the Family History Library
catalog is viewable online and indexes microform media of church and state
records which you can rent for viewing at a Family History Center near
