Question #1: Is there a list of pages missed during filming?
Answer #1: The following is a list of the known missing pages. They are not on the original film in the FamilySearch library unless otherwise noted.

  • Constantine > Baptisms, Burials, 1788-1812. Pages 4 and 5, Pages 8 and 9, Pages 12 and 13 and Pages 16 and 17 are missing. They are, however, available on Film 1545416. See Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche for instructions on ordering microfilm as well as finding a local FamilySearch Center where you can view the films.
  • Falmouth > Baptisms, Marriages, 1663-1812. Pages 16 and 17 are missing between images 24 and 25. Missing are indexes to records between 31 Jan 1713 to 11 Nov 1717
  • St Blazey > Marriages, 1754-1830. Pages 12 and 13 are missing between images 10 and 11. Missing are marriage records between 21 Feb 1775 and 24 Feb 1778.

  • Truro St Mary > Baptisms, Marriage banns, Marriages, Burials, 1597-1839. Pages 230 and 231 are missing between images 128 and 129

Question #2: Is there a list of records that have been mislabeled or located under an incorrect browse point?
Answer #2: The following is a list of known discrepancies:

  • Altarnon > Baptisms, Marriage banns, Marriages, Burials, 1720-1812 records are from St. Anthony
  • Blisland > Baptisms, 1813-1859. Images 56 through 116 contain marriage records for the period 1754-1837 in Blisland

These records are from Treslothan. Treslothan is a chapelry in the parish of Camborne and the Treslothan records are included in the Camborne records. However, Treslothan became it's own parish in 1845.
