IGI Batch No's - research
Research help for those looking in Caithness and surrounds.
When using the IGI (International Genealogical Index) for research please
note the source of the information - usually given in a batch no. or a film
no. A great deal of information in the IGI has been placed there from
"patron submitted forms" or "sealings" and is subject to error, in fact is
highly untrustworthy data.
The following batch numbers are of records taken from the Old Parish
Registers and give more reliable information.

If you see batch numbers in this form - 7116611 - it generally means the
information has come from people submitting their own data. Not everyone
is careful with their research and because of this many errors have crept
into the IGI. Try to stay with batch numbers such as those shown above.
C at the beginning stands for Christenings or births.
M at the beginning stands for Marriages.
All of the above batch numbers contain Sinclair births, christening and
More areas to come later.
