Question #1: There are no marriage records located in the browse path for Mexico, San Luis Potosí, Catholic Church Records, 1586-1970 > Bocas > San Gerónimo. Where can these missing records be found?
Answer #1: If you look at the records in the final browse point Bautismos 1802-1879, you will find that the images are of Matrimonios for the year range 1802-1879. In the Catalog Film Notes for Film Number 708160, Bautismos 1802-1839, 1849-1879 is really Matrimonios 1802-1839, 1849-1879.

Question #2: The records located in all of the final browse points (Event Types and Year Range) in the browse path for Mexico, San Luis Potosí, Catholic Church Records, 1586-1970 > San Luis Potosí > Nuestra Señora de la Asunción seem to come from different parishes. Is there more than one parish in San Luis Potosí named Nuestra Señora de la Asunción?
