Known Issues

Question #1: When searching File 4207590 which contains part of the birth records from Sanilac County through part of Wayne County for 1890 only 517 of 1492 images can be viewed. How can I view the rest of the images for the year 1890?
Answer #1: These images are available on film number 2321267 which can be ordered and viewed at your local FamilySearch Center. See: Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche.

Question #2: When attempting to search File 4207606 it will not open. It contains part of the birth records from Wayne County for 1899; and from Alcona County through Genesee County for 1900. Where can I view these records?
Answer #2: These images are available on film number 2322872 which can be ordered and viewed at your local FamilySearch Center. See: Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche.

Question #3: When searching this collection, I find that many of the records list the christening place as St. John the Baptist, Lewes, Sussex, England. What is the correct information?
Answer #3: The correct birthdate and birthplace are listed for the records in this collection. However, the indexed information from many of the records erroneously lists a christening as taking place at St. John the Baptist in Lewes, Sussex, England. This christening information should be disregarded.
