Show Notes:

This is session number 19

Today’s main topic will be my wife’s DNA Results


  1. Listener comments and or questions.

Lis Salas – “Is there a way to determine if records on have been indexed or not? I have started searching some baptismal records for Marin, Nuevo Leon page by page, and not sure if this is a waste of time.”

An easy way to find out is to go to the search page on familysearch, do not enter a name or last name. On birthplace type marin, then type mexico under country and enter the state. This will give you all indexed records for Marin, Nuevo Leon, I did this and yes they have been indexed. Another way to see if the records have been indexed is to get the film number and on the search page under “restrict records by” select film and enter the film number. That is an easy way also to find out if those particular records have been indexed. I hope this answers your question.
