Known Issues

Question #1: When I searched from the home page (https://familysearch.org ), I found some Michigan death search results included in the Missouri Deaths and Burials, 1867-1976 collection. Is this a correct death location?
Answer #1: Additional death records for Michigan can be found by searching the Missouri Deaths and Burials, 1867-1876 collection. This resulted when some stray records were extracted from cards which contained both Michigan and Missouri deaths. These records are currently not found in any other Michigan collection.

Question #2: Some record detail pages have messaging that states “No image available.” How can I view these images?
Answer #2: Available on the record detail page is a Film Number that you can look up in the Catalog and order for viewing at a FamilySearch Center by clicking on Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche. It would seem that not all of the microfilms were digitized.

Question #3: When I am browsing, the left-side of Page 3 (image 105) is followed by the right-side of Page 62 (image 106). How can I sort these pages out?
