Known Issues

NOTE: For a way to determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection or how to find missing images elsewhere, see Article 56000, How to use Film Notes in the Catalog to determine the content of a final browse point in Historical Records.

NOTE: 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.

Question #1: When searching the collection, I cannot find locations beginning with accented first letters. Where will I find those locations?
Answer #1: The alphabetical system in use at FamilySearch puts locations beginning with accented letters at the end of the list, rather than in its proper alphabetical order. Scroll to the end of the list to find the locations.

Question #2: I am getting the error message "The image is currently unavailable. Please try again." OR the Catalog shows the records but they are not online. Why can't I view the image?
Answer #2: Hungarian Data Privacy rules have recently changed and prohibit viewing the following records: All birth, marriage and death images must be 90 years or older. If a record has already been published prior to this change in privacy ruling, the record is grandfathered in – meaning the record can still be displayed. Previously unpublished or new records cannot be displayed until they meets the new 90 year limit.

If any record on a digital folder contains images that fall within these cut-off dates, they may not be viewed. For example, if birth records that fall within the last 90 years are on the film, the entire digital folder is restricted.

The Historical Records collections will be updated each year to show new unrestricted records. FamilySearch respects and strives to adhere to all privacy laws respective to preserving and providing access to genealogical records in its collection.

Question #5 Is there a list of duplicate records in the collection?
Answer #5: The following are waypoints with duplicate records:

Baranya > Nádasd > Births (Születtek) 1895-1903 images 558-621 are duplicates of the images found in Baranya > Nádasd > Births (Születtek) 1904-1907.
Baranya > Pécs > Marriages (Házasultak) 1895-1896, the records are correct and in order until you reach image 336, where the records are the duplicate.
Borsod > Felsőzsolca > Marriages (Házasultak) 1895-1908, Births (Születtek) 1899-1908. and Deaths (Halottak) 1895-1898 all contain the same 747 images containing, birth, marriage and death records. Records in each browse point are as follows: Birth records images 1-391, marriages images 392-622 and death records images 623-727.
Vas > Németujvár > Births (Születtek) 1907-1920. The images are repeated after image 590

Question #6: There are images for later marriages and deaths for the town of Veszprém > Gecse, but there are also birth records for the town of Gecse in Veszprém > Vaszar. Should these records be combined under one location?
Answer #6: The reason for the two locations is that records for the town of Gecse were initially recorded in Vaszar, and then later in Gecse.

Question #7: Sometimes when I try to open an image for this collection, I get a black screen. How do I find the image?
Answer #7: As long as you find the image information above the viewer screen, the image is there, but too large for the viewer. You can click the sizing tool to adjust the image size up or down. You can also use the cursor to move the image up and/or down on the screen.
