Utah, Salt Lake County Death Registers (FamilySearch Historical Records)/Known IssuesEdit This Page

From FamilySearch Wiki


Known Issues

Question #1: Why am I seeing a register for Edinburgh Scotland instead of a Utah Death certificate when I view the image?
Answer #1:  Unfortunately, images from Scotland are mixed in with the records from Salt Lake County, and some of the Salt Lake County records are linked to the Scottish images. The Workaround below may help you find your images.
Workaround: The images might be found by searching Utah Death Certificates, 1904-1956

Question #2: At the browse path > 004139664 > Image 192 is not the correct right hand page for page 294 (image 191). How can I see the correct image?
Answer #2: Image 192 is a duplicate of image 190. It appears image 193 is the correct right hand part of page 294. Also, images 197, 198 and 199 are out of sequence resulting in confusion as to the correct right hand part of pages 296 and 297.

Question #3: Some of the death years in the record detail page do not match the years in the image. Is there a way to determine what the correct death year is?
Answer #3: The following list of known death date discrepancies should help:

  • 40 records for 1845 should be 1875 – problem only occurs on 4139616-00339.
  • 1 record for 1820 should be 1920 - the problem occurs on 4139717-00457.
