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: When I am browsing Santiago > Defunciones 1959-1966, I see divorce records. Are the death records available from 1959-1966?
Answer #1: Defunciones 1959-1966 are divorce records; the browse point should be named Santiago > Divorcios 1959,1961,1963-1964 and the Catalog Film Notes for Film 700164 also needs to read Divorcios 1959,1961,1963-1964. The death records from 1959-1966 would be included in Defunctiones 1949-1960 and Defunciones 1962-1966, with the exception of 1961.

Question #2: 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 #2: The following list of known browse point discrepancies describes the event type or year range that actually exist in this collection:

Tulancingo > Defunciones 1929-1931 year span should be 1929, 1931. There are no 1930 death records.
