Re: Finding image on LDS microfilm from index #general

I agree with Risa that the record number is by far the easiest way to navigate to the right record. Keep in mind, though, that males and females are numbered separately. The reference to record F266 is to the numbers for females (M266 would be for a male). In the column for record number, there are two subcolumns as shown below. Numbers for females (женскаго) will always be found on the left and numbers for males (мужескаго) on the right. Risa has pointed to the correct (female) record 266; the incorrect (male) record 266 is on image 287.
