England and Wales Census, 1871 (FamilySearch Historical Records)/Known IssuesEdit This Page

From FamilySearch Wiki

Known Issues

Question #1: The Record Description in wiki says the 1871 population was 26,072,036, and the collection is 55% complete. According to the Historical Records Collections page, as of 5 May 2012, there are only 3,033,106 records published. Where are the remaining records?
Answer #1: The record count shown on the “Historical Records Page” is based on the number of households, not the number of individuals.

Question #2: There are instances where I cannot see the images before or after the image attached to a record. How can I see the other images?
Answer #2: Images are being added as they become available. Sometimes the browse path is not loaded even though the image is there. This problem should be corrected as the collection is updated.
