Question #2: Some records are missing. Where can they be viewed?
Answer #2: FamilySearch has limited rights, granted by the record custodians, to publish some images for viewing online. Most missing records are available on microfilm. See Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche for instructions on ordering microfilm as well as finding a local FamilySearch Center where you can view the films. Unfortunately, there are a lot of records that were digitized in the field (Brazil) and corresponding Catalog Film Notes and microfilm do not exist. For a way to determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection or how to find missing images elsewhere, see Document 114052, referenced in Question #1. The following is a list of known missing records and the microfilm information, if available:

Paraíba

  • Paraíba > Monteiro > Nossa Senhora das Dores has four (4) microfilms listed in the Catalog Film Notes that are restricted from viewing online. Films 1365813-1365816 include Batismos, Casamentos, and Óbitos from 1866-1911.

Question #3: Some of the images for Minas Gerais > Cachoeira do Campo > Nossa Senhora de Nazaré > Batismos 1888-1904 are too faint to read. How can I retrieve information?
Answer #3: You may go to the Catalog and order Film Number 1284501 Item 1: Batismos 1888-1904. The film may be viewed at a FamilySearch Center. To order the microfilm please see: Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche.
