Known Issues

Question #1: Many records seem to be missing. For example, where can I see the 1921 Blenheim Probate records?
Answer #1: The images for this collection are being loaded as they become available. The 1921 Blenheim records will be added in the future.

Question #2: I find records where the Event Date is the date of the Will even though the record says the Event is a probate. Which is correct?
Answer #2: When the indexing was done, the probate date was not consistently entered. The date recorded could be the date of the Will, the death date or the date of the Probate. You will be able to determine which date is recorded by looking at the record image.

Question #3: I am unable to view more than the first record for people found on Digital Folder Number 005783768. How can I see the remaining images?
Answer #3: The images from Digital Folder 005783768 are not currently linked to the records. Until this error is corrected, the images are unavailable online. You may however request a photoduplication of the images.
