I have now added the film database to the new Nuestros Ranchos website.

The functionality is still in the works. Users cannot yet add films to the database themselves, but that functionality is on its way... I will try to get to it this weekend.

However, I wanted to get people to try the database as it stands now and give me some feedback.

You will notice that for the films where we have batch numbers, you can simply click on the IGI button and the entire contents of that film available on IGI will come up. You can then refine the search however you like, such as putting in a father's first name or a mother's last name, etc.

As Victor had mentioned, if you are searching on a batch specific basis you can basically enter as little information as you want... so if you have a rough idea of when and where someone was born or married you can search through a couple of batches with very little information and find the person even if the name is misspelled, etc.

Please give it a try and let me know what you think as well as what additional functionalities you would like from this film database. I cannot promise anything but I will try to meet your needs.

Arturo,

226726, 1736-1762, M606257
226727, 1762-1779, M606258
226728, 1776-1807, M606259
226729, 1907-1824, M606268
226730, 1824-1841, M606261
226731, 1841-1855, M606262
226732, 1856-1866, M606263
226733, 1867-1874, M606264
226734, 1874-1880, M606265

Thanks for all your hard work, the site is fantastic.

Alicia

Thank you Alicia for those batch numbers on the films.

If anybody else has a list of batch numbers that you have confirmed are functional either in IGI or VRI, please let me know and I will upload them. Soon you will be able to go in and put in the information into the database yourself.

Also, if you have films at your local Family History Center and would not mind doing an occasional lookup for another member, please let me know so that we can add those films to the database as well, even if they are not indexed in IGI or VRI...

In other words, the film database will serve two purposes:

1. Allow members to do batch searches easily by simply finding the relevant film and clicking to search

2. Allow members to know if anybody in the group has a film on loan at their local FHC that might spare them having to order the film him/herself.

thanks Arturo,

great feature:
