Problem #1: Multiple entry points may access the same record.

Example: Nijmegen: Huwelijken (marriages) 1918-1919 and Echtscheidingen (divorces) 1918-1919 both take you to the same record which is a mixture of both record types. Zoelen: Huwelijken (marriages) 1813-1842: 1813-1839 is marriages only. 1839-1842 contains both marriages and divorces.
