Question #1: Some of the records found at Australia, Tasmania, Civil Registration, 1803-1933 > Launceston and country districts > Births appear to have records different from the browse point description. Is there a list of the correct browse point descriptions?
Answer #1: Following is a list of the known discrepancies in the browse point names.
- RGD 33/24. Births, country districts, Bothwell to Glamorgan, 1838-1850 browse point should be renamed RGB 33/24, Births, Launceston 1850 - 1852.

Question #2: At the Launceston and country districts > Births > RGD 33/52 > 1874 B-W browse point, the records seem to be either missing or out of order. Can you tell me how these records are organized?
