Sorry Paula, But Jean is correct, as the situation applies to DEVON, The LDS
do not have permission to film Devon parish registers, therefore the only
parish registers you will find on the IGI or on LDS film are those which
have previously been transcribed and published and it is the transcriptions
that have been filmed.
The situation is different with non conformist registers, those registers
deposited in the National Archives, I believe, have been filmed
