> The films database on Nuestros Ranchos has two basic functions... the first is
> to make it easier to search IGI and VRI by providing batch numbers by
> municipality and date so that you can easily narrow your search and even perform
> powerful wildcard searches that are usually not possible without batch numbers.
> In fact, when you find a film in the database, you can simply click the IGI or
> VRI button next to the film number and it will take you directly to the
> familysearch website and give you a listing of EVERYTHING that is on that film
> from which you can narrow your search by entering as little or as much
> additional data as you want.
> The second purpose is so that members can see if another member has a particular
> film on indefinite loan at their local FHC. Members who have films on such
> indefinte loan are usually familiar with the content of the film and can answer
> questions and some very generous ones will even do a sporadic lookup for another
> member so as to facilitate searches...
> I hope this helps.
