La Vega Dominican Republic Baptism Church Books - Links and Indexes

The below is a table that I've created over time that I use when I'm searching for an individual within a certain time period for the Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church in La Vega, Dominican Republic. If a book isn't listed then I just haven't gotten to that individual year yet.  There are no books prior to 1805 for this church; read the history to discover why.

Each entry has a hyperlink to the individual book found on Family Search.   I've relabeled some of them with a "b" to indicate that it is a continuation from the prior book but is a physical separate book as there are two books with the same number.

The number next to the word "Image" represent the image number on the website's film roll. I use this as a way of jumping around within a book.

So for example, I want to view a Taveras in Book 11 and it shows this record as being on page 30.  There are 29 letters in the Spanish alphabet.  I will take the image number for the cover (231) add 29 for pages for letters and add 30; this will give me 290.  I then go to the image window box and remove the number that appears there and replace it with 290 and click the "GO" button that appears to the right of it.

I should arrive either on the page or close to it. I can easily jump forward based on the number of pages I am off. To explain this, if wind up on page 20 and I'm off by 10 pages then I remove the 290 from the box and replace it with 300.  I then look to see if I'm on page 30 and if not then I adjust according.

The column on the right provides you a separate link to indexes when they appear at the end of a book or somewhere else entirely.  If you see it state "with Index" that means the index appears after the cover of the book.  As always, any questions, feel free to post below.
