Known Issues

NOTE: To determine which digital records are likely to be found within a collection or to find missing images, see, Using Film Notes in the Catalog to determine the content of a final browse point in Historical Records (56000).

NOTE: Most missing records are available on microfilm. See Ordering a microfilm or microfiche (55678). To view films, see Finding a family history center near you (54018).

NOTE: Pages that appear to be duplicate are not removed because significant genealogical information could be lost if a detail is not readily apparent.

Question #1: Some records are missing. Where can the records be viewed?
Answer #1: See answers below for information about known missing records and respective film numbers, if available, or alternate online location:

  • Olinda > Olinda > Índice de Nascimentos 1917-1919, Vol. 7 are found in the first five (5) images of the final browse point Nascimentos 1911, Jul-1916, Jun, Vol. 7.

Question #2: The Event Type and Year Range (browse point) title does not properly reflect the actual digital record content. How can I determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection?
Answer #2: The list of known browse point discrepancies describes the event type or year range existing in the collection:

  • Iguaraci > Jabitacá > Nascimentos 1891, Abr-1917, Abr;
Iguaraci > Jabitacá > Nascimentos 1917, Maio-1924, Ago; an[[|]]d
Iguaraci > Jabitacá > Óbitos 1946, Out-1961, Ago
are all Matrimônios. See the Catalog Film Notes for Film 1615107, Item 6 and 7: Casamentos 1891-1945 (faltam 1939-1942); and Film 2348290, Item 15: Casamentos 1946-1961. The available birth records on FamilySearch for Jabitacá cover the years 1895 - 1936.
  • Olinda > Olinda > Nascimentos 1911, Jul-1916, Jun, Vol. 7 is correctly entitled; however, the first 5 images have 1917-1919 Vol. 7 Index pages mixed in.
  • Recife > Santo Amaro > Óbitos 1975, Abr-1976, Fev year span should be 1989, Out-Dez.
