The IGI is the International Genealogical Index.  It has been compiled by
the LDS for years (how many exactly I don't know).  It is comprised of
information extracted from records microfilmed by the LDS church (as
opposed to genealogists' research results, which are as good as the
genealogists researching them).  For years one could go to an LDS Family
History Center library and use the IGI on microfilm.  I can't tell you off
the top of my head what it's called now and in what format, but that's at
least how it started.
