LDS Online Database vs Microfilms

Postby Josie07M11 » 14 Dec 2010, 10:58

I am considering ordering some microfilms from LDS to Australia but as most of you would know this can be costly, so before I do I wanted to know how much of the information on the microfilms has been transfered onto the online datatbase?

This may have been answered before so if it has could a kind person send me a link to the thread?

Thank you fellow genealogists :)

Note that many of the on-line holdings descriptions are general (Italy deaths 1809-1900, eg) and the actual online holdings are far from complete. The description does give the # of records, so you can get a relative sense of how much of these have been converted online.
