Laurenzana records - indexes?

Postby dita531 » 02 Oct 2014, 22:33

Many of my ancestors are from here and I'm wondering if there is an index of what I am looking at - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... %3D2043547

For example, if I want to look at births in 1872 it shows me a document where all the books (3189 images) from 1869-1900 are. Just wondering if there is an easier way. TIA!

When you click on the Nati for 1869-1900, you are getting the images of all the birth records within that span of years. There is usually an index at the beginning or end of each book (year) for the births recorded. You will need to learn to read the years so that you can search for the correct year and find the beginning or end to see IF there is an index. Not all books have indexes.
HOWEVER, that being said, I will start you off :-)
Here is the link to the index for the year 1872 in Laurenzana... the records for 1872 (births) are BEFORE this index. Happy searching!
If you need help finding a particular record... let us know. We can help.

The other way is to use ancestry.com universal subscription which have the Laurenzana indexes already separated for you. Most Family History Libraries have use of free ancestry.com also check your public library
