This list cannot provide you with assistence with LDS. You can
find LDS-specific help lists at www.rootsweb.com and the LDS
website. In fact there's documents on www.familysearch.org that
explain about batch numbers.
This list is the Scotch-Irish list -- not LDS-help. You may
also find people on the several newbie lists at rootsweb that
can assist you.
Best of luck,
