Known Issues

NOTE: For a way to determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection or how to find missing images elsewhere, see Article 56000, Using Film Notes in the Catalog to determine the content of a final browse point in Historical Records.

Question #1: The Event Type and Year Range (browse point) title does not properly reflect the actual digital record content. Is there a way to determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection?
Answer #1: The following list of known browse point discrepancies describes the event type or year range that actually exist in this collection:

  • Chiquimula > Chiquimula > Nuestra Señora de la Asunción > Matrimonios 1926-1931 and Defunciones 1699-1778 have records that are transposed. The marriage records are in Defunciones 1699-1778; and the death records are in Matrimonios 1926-1931.
  • Quiché > Santa Cruz del Quiché > Santa Cruz> Bautismos 1847-1931 contains Bautismos 1929-1931 and Confirmaciones 1847-1912 (see Film Notes for Film 794798). The confirmations start with image 281 to End of roll.

Question #2: Some records are missing. Where can they be viewed?
Answer #2: See answers below for information about known missing records and their respective film numbers, if available, or alternate online location.

  • Chimaltenango > Tecpán > San Francisco > Bautismos 1788-1813 is missing page 4 from Item 2. The page is not found on the microfilm.

Question #3: I cannot make heads or tails out of several browse points in Guatemala > Mixco > Santo Domingo. Would you breakdown the contents of these browse points?
Answer #3: By reviewing the Catalog Film Notes located in Registros parroquiales, 1719-1931; Iglesia Católica. Santo Domingo (Mixco, Guatemala), you can better understand the content of the browse points. The following browse points have been identified as having a ‘complex’ content:
