Who knew Family Search would have such a great resource? I am often frustrated looking for sources there -especially census information. I have never seen this before but here it is:

They have much the same sort of thing for parishes as well.

See this as an example https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/Gwinear,_Cornwall_Genealogy

really good for tracking down Church records as well as census and other records.

FamilySearch has a lot of such resources. Thank you for pointing it out. Most people search the records and that is about it. The resource pages and the Library catalog are two other great resources. The catalog is the original microfilm and book catalog for the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. There are lots of films that have been digitized and not indexed that show up there. There are also films that have not been digitized. Eventually they probably will be but it is good to know that the films exist. I'm slowly working through records that haven't been indexed but are online. Slow going but I also started doing this before the Internet came into being so it is still very, very convenient.
