Question #1: When I search for an image, the wrong image comes up. How do I find the correct image?
Answer #1: Some images are incorrectly linked, and they may be several records off. Certificates may be located by matching the certificate number, found in the record details, to the actual certificate on the images. This is done by scrolling through the images until the correct certificate number is located.
Question #2: Some certificates are missing. What should I do?
Answer #2: If you determine, based on the certificate numbers, that images are missing, please report the problem at email@example.com so that it can be investigated and corrected. In some cases the images were missed in the original filming, but in some cases they were missed when the film was digitized. If it can be determined through reporting the missing image that it is on the original film the film can be ordered (See Ordering Microfilm and Microfiche) and viewed at a local FamilySearch Center.
Question #3: Some images are covered by an overlay. How can I see the information that is covered?
Answer #3: When a record contained an overlay, it was filmed twice, once with the overlay and once without so that no pertinent information was lost. By scrolling forward or backward you should find the image without the overlay. If you are unable to find the image without the overlay please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with all of the pertinent information (names, date, place etc.)
Question #4: There are images in the waypoint 1950 > 19401-22100 that do not have the death date listed on the search results list nor on the record details page. Where can I find the death date?
Answer #4: The date seems to have been missed in the indexing. You can find the death date by viewing the image. The date is recorded there.
