Known Issues

Question #1: Records that were previously viewed in this collection may not currently be available on-line. Where can these missing records be found?
Answer #1: Since all of the records were extracted from microfilms, any missing records can be located by searching the Library Catalog and viewing the relevant films at a FamilySearch Center. For instructions on ordering microfilm please see: Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche.

Question #2: Sometimes a Batch will list the wrong location for the marriage. How can I find the correct location?
Answer #2: You may find the Batch number in the table below, which consists of incorrect locations along with correct locations that have been reported. We also included the film number which you can order and view at your local FamilySearch Center. Instruction for doing this can be found at Ordering Microfilm and Microfiche. Verifying the correct marriage location requires viewing the microfilm.

Question #3: The film number given on the record details page is sometimes incorrect. Can you tell me the correct film number?
Answer #3: A list with the correct film numbers we currently know of is as follows:

  • The correct film number for batch M99610-2 is not film # 70740 as given on the record details page but film # 70741.
  • There are duplicate indexed records for batchM93048-1 with different films (815860 and 1189644). The correct duplicate indexed record for Batch M93048-1 is the one associated with Film 1189644 and the marriage place of Evangelisch, Hesselhurst, Offenburg, Baden.
