These record sets use batch and film numbers to indicate the source of the information.
Film numbers refer to materials found at the Family History Library. These individual microfilms often contain copies of original records from courthouses, churches and other repositories. To learn more about a specific film number, you can search the Family History Library Catalog on the FamilySearch website (see useful links).
Batch numbers refer to a set of records extracted from microfilms. Batches might be separated by a specific type of record (births, baptisms, marriages, burials, etc.) and multiple film numbers could be included in a single batch number.
Findmypast displays a “People with the same last name on this source” function in order to help locate related records in the same film and/or batch. This function can also reveal the records for family members included in the same original source. For some records, this will uncover additional entries for the same individual but with slightly different information.
Expand your search by clicking the “name variants” box in the search bar. This will return more records with similar names, including possible alternate spellings or the use of initials or middle names.
Search for additional information about your ancestor in Arizona newspapers. Death notices and obituaries were common in many local newspapers and often provide specific and valuable details.
