Question #1: Some indexed records have name, event place or date errors. How can I determine the correct information?

- Napann should be spelled Napanee
- Osuabruck should be spelled Osnabruck

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 either the Event Date, Event Place, Film Number or the Reference ID information, or a combination of any of the search criteria, to find the correct image by clicking the right or left scroll arrow.
