Known Issues

NOTE: Many Germany indexed death and burial records include in the Death Place name, a reference to Evangelisch or Katholisch. These terms are religious affiliations (Protestant or Catholic), not place names.

Question #1: Records that were previously viewed in this collection may not currently be available online. Where can these missing records be found?
Answer #1: Since all of the records were extracted from microfilms, any missing records can be located by searching the Library Catalog and viewing the relevant films at a FamilySearch Center. For instructions on ordering microfilm please see: Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche.

Question #2: Sometimes a Batch will list the wrong location for the marriage. How can I find the correct location?
Answer #2: You may find the Batch number in the table below, which consists of incorrect locations along with correct locations that have been reported. We also included the film number which you can order and view at your local FamilySearch Center. Instruction for doing this can be found at Ordering Microfilm and Microfiche. Verifying the correct marriage location requires viewing the microfilm.
