The Family Group Records Collection provides microfilmed copies of about 8 million family group records created by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The collection can help you survey research done previously by others, saving you time and giving you valuable information. While you should not assume the information to be completely accurate, you can use the information and sources provided on the family group records to guide you to original records. The collection is divided into two sections, the Archive Section and the Patrons Section.
This section of the Family Group Records Collection contains five million family group records submitted by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints between 1942 and 1969. The Archive Section of the Family Group Records Collection was previously available to the public in binders marked with pink labels on the spines. Unfortunately, patrons removed some of the records before microfilming could be completed. The records are now available to the public only on microfilm.
The family group records are arranged alphabetically by the husband's surname, then given name, and then by the date of birth/christening. In 1993 the microfilms in the Archive Section were checked against the original family group records and it was found that 18,000 sheets were not microfilmed. The missing sheets were photocopied and then microfilmed as an addendum to the collection. This collection is now online
1,998 microfilm reels, beginning with 1273501 and the addendum starts on film 1750758.
Family group records for some countries or non-Roman languages were either not included in the Main Collection, or were updated after the main collection was filmed. These additional collections were later filmed separately. This collection is arranged alphabetically by husband's romanized name, then by birth date. Most records are for persons living from ca. 1100-1979 A.D.
33 microfilm reels, beginning with
Greece and miscellaneous countries
Family group records for some countries or non-Roman languages were either not included in the Main Collection, or were updated after the main collection was filmed. These additional collections were later filmed separately. This collection is arranged alphabetically, by husband's name when known, and by wife's name when name of husband is unknown. Within this arrangement, records of different people with the same name are arranged by birthdate.
3 microfilm reels, with miscellaneous countries beginning on 1281096 and Greece on 1281098.
In the Archive Section, an asterisk (*) next to the name of the husband, wife, their parents, or their children indicates that this individual appears on another Archive Section family group record. An asterisk next to the name of a child's spouse indicates another spouse is specified on the back of the record.
Three million family group records were submitted to the Patrons Section between 1926-1979. The purpose was to share genealogical information and identify others working on the same lines. Each collection has some names that cannot be found in other filmings. The family group records often included a brief list of the sources used to compile the record. Sometimes the sources specify old film numbers or book numbers used by the Family History Library. Some records also included biographical histories for the family members listed on the form. In many instances several records have been submitted for the same family unit. Comparison of these records will sometimes reveal discrepancies. The collection binders have been removed from circulation so these records are available only on microfilm.
The 1924- collection has been filmed twice, once after 1950 and again after 1962. This collection should not be confused with the '1924-1942 : unalphabetized' collection.
Records pertain primarily to persons living from ca. 1700-1962. Contains some records for persons living as far back as 600 A.D. Records arranged in approximate alphabetical order. Surnames spelled differently but pronounced the same are often interfiled; some records filed out of alphabetical order. Records for some surnames are incomplete or missing. This filming is difficult to read. The 1924-1962 filming includes most of these records and is more legible.
824 microfilm reels, beginning with 260872
Records are arranged alphabetically by husband's name when known, and by wife's name when name of husband is unknown. If there is more than one record with the same filing name then they are arranged by birth/christening date. Some records were filmed slightly out of order. This filming includes most of the records from the 1924-1950 filming and is more legible.
614 microfilm reels, beginning with 412088
The 1962- collection resulted from the Three- and Four-Generation Programs of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In 1965 the Church asked members to submit family group records for three generations of their family. By the end of 1966, about 20% of members had participated. In 1966 the Church extended the request to four generations plus a pedigree chart. Submissions made after 1 July 1979 were added to Ancestral File rather than the Family Group Records Collection.
The 1962- collection has also been filmed twice. The 1962-1977 filming is arranged alphabetically and the 1962-1979 filming is arranged by submission year. The collection was previously available to the public in binders marked with yellow labels on the spines.
Arranged alphabetically by husband's name when known, and by wife's name when name of husband is unknown. If there is more than one record with the same filing name then they are arranged by birth/christening date. Filming was done in two groups. Surnames 'A' to 'Kelsey' were filmed first and occupy rolls 1558711 through 1558961. The filming was stopped when it was discovered that Ancestral File contained information for 80 percent of the sheets. Surnames 'Kelsey' to 'Z' were filmed in 2003-2004 on rolls 2368889, 2369005.
596 microfilm reels, beginning with 1558711
Arranged by submission year, then by husband's name (or wife's name if husband is unknown), and then by birth date (or christening date if birth is unknown). Years 1962-1965 were interfiled. Subsequent years are grouped by individual year. Records that were submitted during 1978 and 1979 are included in this filming, but not the 1962-1977 filming.
1165 microfilm reels, beginning with 428056
The patrons section also contains a number of small, miscellaneous collections.
These family group records are sometimes referred to as supplementary family group records. They were submitted to the Genealogical Society for filing only.

One final collection in the patrons section is the '1924-1942 : unalphabetized' collection. It is cataloged under 'patron section' instead of 'patrons section.' This collection should not be confused with the alphabetized, 1924- collection.
1924-1942 : unalphabetized
Family group records filmed in the order received; no alphabetical or geographical arrangement. 'Probably the very first collection of family group records. These forms had spaces to record families on the front and back of the sheet — therefore they are called the Form 2 collection. Because of this condition, it was not possible to alphabetize the sheets.' 
1030 microfilm reels, beginning with 685000
The data sources listed on some of these family group records often include old book and film numbers. There have been a number of old book and film numbers used by the Family History Library over the years to identify and label its book and microfilm collections. When microfilming began, a combination of letters and numbers was used to number the films. Later, a system of serial numbers with part numbers was used. Finally, a straight numbering system was used beginning with film number 000001. Each time, the existing films were renumbered. Today there are more than 2,400,000 microfilms in the library's collection.
In order to find a source on film, you may need to convert an old film number to a new film number. For instructions, see 'Old book and film numbers.'
