No PDBs at SD FHC Yet

What's a PDB? Why, a Premium DataBase, of course.

My research mission today was to go to the San Diego Family History Center today and read my microfilm of Jamestown (RI) Land Evidences (1680-1744), and capture some probate and land records on my flash drive. That part of the mission was successful - I got 47 images of the grantee/grantor indexes and also three probate files from Volume 1. I need to go back next week and read Volume 2 and collect the deed records in Volume 1.

The bad news was that the San Diego FHC was not one of the 100 or so FHCs that have enabled access to the WorldVitalRecords databases. Dang it - I was looking forward to checking out the WVR databases. Oh well, I'll check again next week! They do have links that work to HeritageQuestOnline and the National Archives in the Premium Databases in the Favorites list. All of the other links go to the web site home pages and requests a login.
