Known Issues

Note to Patrons: Many of the records in the Civil Registrations have files connected to the wrong records. This link: Wegwijzer in de wondere wereld van FamilySearchalso known as Genver, contains a list of all the problems that have been reported thus far and the correct location of the desired records. This site is being updated as needed. The information is in Dutch.

Question #1: Why do some record sets include records of a type other than that described in the set title; i.e., births, deaths, marriages, and divorces may be mixed together?
Answer #1: The original records are of mixed type. Birth, marriage and death records are in one book, and in some cases, more than one record type is found on the same page. Not much can be done to resolve that, so the collection was organized with three sets of the same images in numerical order. One set for births, one for deaths and one for marriages. The resulting combination of record sets usually appear alphabetically by type, e.g., Geboorten records appear first, followed by Huwelijken, Overlijden, etc.

Question #2: At the browse point Melick en Herkenbosch > Tienjarige tafels 1883-1912, the records seem to be from Merkelbeek. Is that correct?
Answer #2: The first 16 images at this browse point are from Merkelbeek. Melick en Herkenbosch records follow starting at image 17. The Merkelbeek records are also found correctly at the Merkelbeek browse point.
