How do I convert an old microfilm number (with part #) to a current microfilm or digital number? Ex
Regarding the "Title" ...
Was that "saylor collection of Graves Markers"?
Or, was that "Sailor collection of Graves Markers"?
Please confirm the EXACT "Title".
And, please confirm the Location (ie. Country); &, 'Context' (Military; or, Merchant)
This was from a list of references cited online from a researcher. I imagine that the reference to "Saylor" is to the author E. C. Saylor who published books regarding research in Somerset county, Pennsylvania. I checked all of the listing at the FHL online and because so many of the microfilms are not available until the libraries are re-opened I couldn't find any that had my ancestors in them (I did check all that were available online). So that led me to the question of how to lookup what the current call number/microfilm is today based on this older film#/part#.0
I found these two (x2) references in the 'FamilySearch' "Wiki":
[ through a 'Google' search ... ]
Converting Old FHL Film Numbers to Current Numbers
Old book and film numbers
I hope these help.
ps: I found references in the 'FamilySearch' "Catalogue" and "Books" for E.C. Saylor; but, NOTHING to do with "Grave Markers".
Thank you. I thought that I had looked at those articles and tried some of them from the Wiki, but I didn't see one of them and it resolved the issue:)
I think old microfilm number 5268 is now new microfilm 22054
However, I could only find a reference in the Catalog to items 1-4 of this microfilm catalogued as Births and baptisms of Somerset Co., Pa. : Reformed and Lutheran church records of Berlin, Somerset County, Pa.,
There doesn't seem to be any catalogue reference to further items, and you are after item 14.
I think you would beed to write to Support, asking where you can access later items on this microfilm. Ask Support to forward your query to Historical records
I found a reference to this microfilm http://files.usgwarchives.net/pa/somerset/history/family/bowlin-p.txt, and there is reference to items on the microfilm up to item 16, so you would think items 5-16 would be available somewhere. Perhaps the problem is that they have not been catalogued, rather than they are no longer available at all.0
Thank you so much!0
