From FamilySearch Wiki

Known Issues

Question #1 - Some of the Images are too light and difficult to read.
Answer #1 - The images for the Rhode Island State Census, 1905, were scanned again to see if the quality could be improved but unfortunately, due to the condition of the original microfilming, FamilySearch was not able to significantly improve them.

Question #2 – Why are there no counties listed?
Answer #2 – When the images were placed online the county category was not used. To browse this collection you need to browse by the Town or City. An alternative is to search by the person’s name. The indexed information page (records details) will show the City or Town and the County for each person.

Question #3 - The back side of the card does not match the indexed information page (record details).
Answer #3 - The census cards contain a front and back side. On image viewer, there is an image showing the front of a card which is followed by an image of the back of a card; however it is impossible to be certain that the back of the card is for the same person as shown on the previous image because the back side of the card has no identifying number or name. The information on the record details page and the back of the card shown on the image should be used as a reference guide for finding more concrete evidence of the birthplace for parents or for any other information which might be listed there.

Question #4: When I click to view the document, the wrong image comes up. How do I view the correct image?
Answer #4: In some cases, the image is off by two or four records. Please click the Previous or Next buttons (arrows) to see if the correct image appears.
