There is really no need to be rude. Owen is well aware of how to use the IGI -
if you had followed the thread this would have been evident. I took the time and
trouble, including time on-line (which I pay for) to answer Owen's puzzle rather
than issue a stock reply.
It is the sole prerogative of the listowner (which rule I'm aware I'm breaking
on this occasion) to make comments on how questions are answered, as I have
explained to you off-list in a previous case when you 'flamed' me.
I belong to the Devon list purely out of interest - it is my home county,
although I have no ancestors there, and I don't expect to be castigated for
attempting to help.
By all means, give your useful information in answer to queries (preferably
without use of upper case which denotes shouting apart from when stating
surnames) but please do not criticise others' answers.
Apologies to all other listers, but this one rattled my cage!

Enough chatter, give him some help.
Use the Family History Center (FHC) at the nearest
LDS Church to you.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A CHURCH MEMBER.
GO TO www.familysearch.org
GO TO "LIBRARY TAB" Click on it
GO TO "Family History Centers" Click on it
ENTER "Your Location" Click on SEARCH
NEAREST FHC IS SHOWN
GO TO "Family History Library Catalog" Click on it
GO TO "Place Search" Click on it
ENTER (in your case NEWTON ABBOT)
"The Place your searching for Records" Click on SEARCH
THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF RECORDS
GO TO "Church Records" Click on it
"Parish Records etc." Click on it
"VIEW FILM NOTES" upper Right, Click on it
WRITE DOWN "Parish register transcripts, (the years shown)
Church of England (or whatever church), Parish Church of (your town)"
I came up with;
"Baptisms 1726 - 1836, Salem Chapel Newton Abbot, Devon, Independent"
FHL BRITISH Film 590693 Item 1
THEY COULD HAVE BEEN MARRIED IN THE Church of England.
"Parish records, CoE, Newton Abbot, Devon, 1558 - 1805"
FHL BRITISH Film 917202 Items 4 - 5
THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL ORDER, COST ? in U.S.$3.50 PER FILM for
about 10 weeks, To be used at the FHC.
Baptisms you should find the child or children with the Father
& Mother named.
By using the records Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials you
should be able to work back some generations.
on your FAVORITES you will use it.

~~~~and here I am replying again:~~~~~~~~
I've just had a look - all that the reference means is that the records for
Northam are on the same film as Highweek. (If you click on 'print out call
you'll see entries from elsewhere in Devon and in other counties.)
It's the Highweek ones you need - as I said, Northam is up the other end of
