Hi Nelson,

I had a similar experience with the St. Petersburg films.  I could not find
the maiden name of one of my g-g-g-grandmothers (it was not on the digital
page).  When (a year later) I looked at the actual film, it was right there!

It really did pay to look at the actual films.  But I never thought to check
the films for names that I haven't found on the pixel.

Thanks for the tip.

library, his record of birth shows up on the St. Petersburg Film for the
year 1882. I am not saying this, to disparage in any way,the hard work done
by the thousands of volunteers who have put the internet program together.
All I am saying is that there is hope for some of us by going back to the
original films in the Family History Centers and finding gold.
