Known Issues

Question #1: How can I see the image of page 5 of the Luzerne, Pennsylvania Marriage Licenses, 1901-1902?
Answer #1: Page 5 of the Luzerne, Pennsylvania Marriage Licenses, 1901-1902 was accidentally omitted from the digital film. Page 5 can be viewed on film # 955886. You can order the film and then view it at your local FamilySearch Center. See: Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche.

Question #2: When I try to search this collection by county, I receive the message “No records found”. Why am I receiving this message?
Answer #2: The marriage place in this collection is listed in the indexed information as “Event Place” and the search engine does not recognize it. You currently cannot search this collection by county.

Question #3: When searching for a marriage record, the link took me to the wrong image. Is there a way to find the correct image?
Answer #3: If the displayed image is incorrect, look back at the indexed information page. Near the bottom you will see a category titled reference number or page number. Use this number and move forward or backward to find the correct page with the desired image.

Question #4: I tried using the reference number to find an image that was incorrectly linked. It is not there. Is there a way to obtain a copy of the marriage certificate?
Answer #4: Occasionally an image is missed when a collection is placed online. If the image you are searching for is missing, you may request a copy by contacting support@familysearch.org. Please include all search criteria used, including name, event, dates and places. If you prefer you can order the film and view it at your local FamilySearch Center. (See Answer #1 above for instructions). You will find the film number listed near the bottom of the indexed information page, close to where you find the reference number.

Question #5: Folders 004460701 and 4838906 are missing from the browse section. Are the images from these folders available?
