FAMILY SEARCH Internet Genealogy Service - the mother of all name search sites, but be sure to read their disclaimer about possible errors. As one knowing researcher recently reported on the Dutch Colonies mailing list: About those "LDS records" .... Are you talking about the IGI,
or the Ancestry File, or...? If the IGI, is the entry an extracted
record or a member submission? You have to be very careful
about what you find on the familysearch site or the CDs. The
extracted records are pretty reliable, but the member submissions
and the Ancestry File contain a lot of garbage. They can be used
only as clues, and you need to check the sources, if any are given.
