  • A record containing an overlay is filmed twice, once with the overlay and once without to preserve pertinent information. Scroll forward, or backwards to see the image without the overlay.

Question #2: The record detail page is linked to the wrong image. How can I find the correct image?
Answer #2: From the record detail page, use the Event Date, Event Place, and/or File Number or Reference ID (certificate number) to find the correct image by using the right or left scroll arrow. In some cases, the image was not placed online resulting in a link failure. Order the microfilm using the Film Number for viewing. Unfortunately, in some cases, the File Number on the record detail page is incorrect or missing.

Question #3: Some indexed records have name, relationship and event place, date or type errors. How can I determine the correct information?
Answer #3: View the document to verify the correct information. The event place and event date can also be verified by searching the Catalog using the film number included in the record detail page. See Finding microfilm numbers in the catalog (55632). See answers below for information about known problems:

  • 1950 > 19401-22100 does not have the death date information on the search results page or record details page.
