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 .

NOTE: Most missing records are available on microfilm. See Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche for instructions on ordering microfilm as well as finding a local FamilySearch Center where you can view the films.

NOTE: Many of the Cape Town records are not found in the correct year of death. The records have been filmed as found in the archives. In general the records have been filed by registration date which may have been some time after the actual death date. Also, some later death records have been filed in earlier years. To find the correct record, you need to look at adjacent years.
