Known Issues

Question: I used to be able to see records but they are no longer available. Where can I see them?
Answer: Whenever possible, FamilySearch makes images available for all users. However, ultimate rights to view images on our website are granted by the record custodians. British Columbia rules prohibit viewing the following records: All birth images must be 100 years or older; all marriage images must be 75 years or older, and all death images must be 20 years or older.

If any record on a digital folder contains records that are later than the above restrictions allow, the entire digital folder is restricted.

The British Columbia Vital Records Wiki article provides information on other search options.
