Known Issues

NOTE: For a way to determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection or how to find missing images elsewhere, see Article 56000, Using Film Notes in the Catalog to determine the content of a final browse point in Historical Records.

NOTE: Most missing records are available on microfilm. See Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche for instructions on ordering microfilm as well as finding a local FamilySearch Center where you can view the films.

NOTE: Some of the record types and year ranges (Tipo de registro y años) are in multiple languages, such as Catalan, Spanish or Latin. They do belong in this collection.

Question #1: The browse point Sarriá > Sarriá > Registro de nacimientos 1843-1856 contains images with the year as early as 1836. What is the correct year span?
Answer #1: The film associated with this browse point is Film 1918022, Items 1-4: Padrónes de vecindarios, 1891-1895, 1897Cajas 120(cont.)-122 (incluye bajas y altas). These images are from Item 4 which is not clearly described in the Film Notes. However, Images 1 to 237 contain Registro de Nacimientos 1836-1838, 1841-1856 (out of order); and Images 238 to 306 contain Padrones 1897 to 1899.

Question #2: The records in the browse point Barcelona > Barcelona > Padrón general, 1898, 1910 indicate that they are from Sarriá. Is this correct?
Answer #2: These records should be relocated to Sarriá > Sarriá > Padrón general, 1898, 1910

Question #3: There are records from Hostafranchs in the browse point Sarriá > Sarriá > Padrones 1865-1917. Is that the correct location?
Answer #3: Hostafranchs was a populated place in the area of Sarria and Barcelona, but not an official city. There are 24 images in this waypoint for Sarría. The remainder of the 450 images, beginning with image 25 are from Hostafrachs. Possibly the images from Hostafrachs should be relocated to Barcelona > Hostafranchs > Padrónes 1891-1899.

Question #4: Is the year span for the browse point Barcelona > Barcelona > Índice de matrimonios 1965-1990 correct?
Answer #4: The browse point should be renamed Matrimonios 1965-1970, Letras A – Lo. In addition, Film 2373793, Item 1: Indice de Matrimonios, 1965-1970, vol. 1522, Hombres, letras Lo-Z should be added as a browse point. Until then, you can access these records by Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche.
