Hi Terry, I dont' think you understood what I meant. I am not
disagreeing with anything that you said below. However, what I mean
is that the LDS FHL has microfilms which have not been extracted for
the IGI. One shouldn't assume that if a parish does not appear on the
list of those in the IGI that there won't be a film for it. Maybe all
Devon parishes which have some kind of film have been extracted, I
don't know, but that is not true for the rest of England. In the
original email from me, I mentioned that only transcriptions are
available for Devon. Paula
