Do we have a list of all the films that Jaime Holcombe contributed to familysearch.org? I have come across some, but I don't know if I've seen a comprehensive list.

Maria

your message came through great. I don't know of such a list, but I know
that Jaime Holcombe, Jr. applied for membership to the list, but has not
replied yet to the requirements for subscription. hopefully he'll join
the group and be able to answer your question. . .if he doesn't I'll
send you his email address and you can ask and forward his answer to the
group.

thanks,

joseph

ps: you will need to resend your previous email to Josie as it didn't go
through.

Maria:

Can you describe for us what is contained in these films that Jaime Holcombe contributed? Where did you run across them? in the familysearch.org database?

Does anybody know how one goes about finding such contributions in the online database or from a family history center?

Arturo,

They are IGI entries such as this one:

Messages:
Family group record submitted by a member of the LDS Church. The record includes the submitter's name and address and names and relationships of family members. The address may be outdated. Some information is estimated. To find the record on the film, you must know the batch and sheet number.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Source Information:
Batch Number: F867915
Sheet: 003
Source Call No.: 1396254 Type: Film

This example above may be one contributed by the late Mr. Holcombe. I understand he contributed quite a bit to familysearch. It would be nice to have a list of all the films he contributed because he had all the families connected and all the individuals for a family would be found on the same film. Take a look at all the names on the above batch and you will see there are entries for Aguascalientes, Jalos., and Tepatitlan for all the connected members of a family on the same film. It's a real treasure.

Joseph,

Yes, I would be very interested in contacting Jaime Holcombe Jr. Thank you!

Maria

Hi Maria:

Did you find out anything from National Geographic? Just wondering...

Hi John,

I called Mr. Hagues and left a voice mail message. I have not heard back from him. If I ever do, I will send the group a message.

Maria

if you enter the batch number in the search field youget these results.
These patron films are nothing but family group sheets submitted by
members of the church.

For anyone living in the Seattle area there will be a workshop on April 23 at the NARA facility. See the link below.

Hello, Nuestros Ranchos. I recently joined NR and I’m learning to navigate the website and the vast information provided. If there is a list of Jaime Holcombe’s “films” out there, I have not been able to locate it. So decided to share a list I compiled.

If anyone is still interested in looking at Holcombe’s Family Group Sheets, here are the films where they are located. He did not submit films. He sent in the old-style, horizontal-form Family Group Sheets. Each film has thousands of FGS submissions from LDS patrons. The sheets are listed by batch number for the year and date submitted. Each batch has about 50 sheets. These LDS films can be ordered for viewing at a Family History Center. You can easily find Holcombe’s entries in each film if you have a batch number.

Film 1396254 (Batch F867915, F867916)
Film 1396257 (Batch F868209, F868245, F868246, F868247)
Film 1396258 (Batch F868325, F868326, F868327, F868339)
Film 1396287 (Batch F867631, F868514)
Film 1396289 (Batch F868767, F868768, F868769, F868822)
Film 1396255 (Batch F868024, F868025, F868026, F868027)
Film 1396260 (Batch F868513, F868515, F868527)
Film 1396252 (Batch F867689)
Film 1553960 (Batch F867345)

After creating this list I found one more batch F869446, but do not have a film number for it. The majority of these batches have only submissions by Jaime Holcombe. About 1,000 sheets in all.

I just checked FamilySearch to see if the films could be viewed online. No luck. But noticed that a “zero” has been inserted before the last number in the batches I did check. (e.g., Batch F867345 is listed as F8673405).

This list was compiled ages ago and there may be FGSs that I’ve missed. Witness the orphan batch for which I have no film. Let us know if you find some more.

Hello Mary Lou Montagna,

Do you happen to know the batch and film numbers for the Perez Templador family group sheets from Jaime Holcombe's collection?

We met many years ago. You helped reenergize my research when I was ready to give it up.

Thanks,

Rick A Ricci

Hi, Rick. I'm still here and glad to see you are too. I made copies of all Jaime's "Los Altos" FGS (including the back when necessary) and for a very brief moment they were neatly organized alphabetically in five binders. That didn't last long because I began to pull them out here and there and put them in various files. Bad decision because now I'm not sure where some of them are. But the good news is that in the proper binder I found the FGS for Ignacio Antonio Perez Temblador cc Maria Teresa Muñoz de la Barba and nine of their children. It's the only one I found (his parents are not given) and I'll be happy to send you a scanned copy. Assume your email hasn't changed. FYI the batch number is F868769-010 in film 1396289. That "010" only means it was number 10 in that batch.

Really good to hear from you.

Mary Lou
