Answer #2: The following list of known browse point discrepancies describes the event type or year range that actually exist in this collection:

  • Asunción Sagrario Metropolitano (Centro) > Información matrimonial 1778, 1818 year span should be limited to 1778 records.
  • Santa Veracruz (Guerrero Sureste) includes records for both Santa Veracruz (Cuahtemoc) and Santa Veracruz (Guerrero Sureste) under the same browse point heading. The Catalog Note, located in Documentos eclesiásticos, 1663-1880; Iglesia Católica.
