Known Issues

NOTE: Whenever possible, FamilySearch makes images available for all users. However, ultimate rights to view images on our website are granted by the record custodians. The recommendation for publication of Spain records prohibits putting the following records online: births after 1910, marriages after 1930 and deaths after 1960. If any record on a digital folder contains birth records after 1910, for example, the entire digital folder is restricted. The Historical Records collections will be updated each year to show new unrestricted records. FamilySearch respects and strives to adhere to all privacy laws respective to preserving and providing access to genealogical records in its collection.  

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

Spain, Province of Granada, Catholic Pre-Marriage Investigation Files, 1556-1899

Question #1: When searching for my ancestors, I believe that the marriage year 1843 should be 1643. Will you verify this for me?
Answer #1: If a marriage record is dated 1843 AND has the Film Number: 1542989 in the Record Detail page, the correct marriage date is 1643. See the Catalog Film Notes for Film 1542989: Expedientes matrimoniales 1643.

Question #2: When searching for 1796-1797 marriage records in Granada, Spain, the Film number 1648777 does not contain the records. What is the correct film number?
Answer #2: Film 1648777: Expedientes matrimoniales 1806-1807 is not the correct film for these records. Until the records have been verified, we believe the correct film number to be Film 1650124: Expedientes matrimoniales 1796-1797. See Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche for instructions on ordering microfilm as well as finding a local FamilySearch Center where you can view the films.

Spain, Catholic Church Records, 1500-1930

Question #1: The Event Type and Year Range (Tipo de Registo e Anos - browse point) title does not properly reflect the actual digital record content. Is there a way to determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection?
Answer #1: For a way to determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection or how to find missing images elsewhere, see Document 114052, How to use Film Notes in the Catalog to determine the content of a final browse point in Historical Records. The following is a list of known browse point discrepancies and the correct information:

Barcelona
Barcelona > Arenys de Mar > Santa María > Indice de Bautismos 1772-1851 are actually Gerona > Alfar > San Martín > Indice de Bautismos 1772-1851. For more information about what records are available, see the Catalog Film Notes for Film 1383896:
• Santa María (Arenys de Mar, Barcelona) - Item 1-2 Defunciones 1851-1909 (párvulos)
• San Martín (Alfar, Gerona) - Items 3-4 Bautismos 1742-1851

Barcelona > Arenys de Mar > Santa María > Bautismos 1832-1862 are located in Barcelona > Arenys de Munt > Santa María > Bautismos 1832-1843, Bautismos 1844-1851, Bautismos 1851-1859, and Bautismos 1859-1862.

Barcelona > Arenys de Munt > Santa María > Bautismos 1832-1843, Bautismos 1844-1851, Bautismos 1851-1859, and Bautismos 1859-1862 are actually records for Barcelona > Arenys de Mar > Santa María. For more information about what records are available, see the Catalog Film Notes for Film 1383888, Bautismos 1832-1862.

Barcelona > Arenys de Munt > San Martín > Bautismos 1662-1826 are actually Gerona > Breda > Santa María > Bautismos 1662-1739, Bautismos 1739-1784, and Bautismos 1808-1827
However, when you click on Gerona > Breda > Santa María > Bautismos 1662-1739, the path changes back to Barcelona > Arenys de Munt > San Martín > Bautismos 1662-1826 and you can view all three of the Gerona > Breda > Santa María baptismal records together. This is attributed to a shared digital film and is called a wandering breadcrumb. For more information about what records are available, see the Catalog Film Notes for Film 1171856: Bautismos 1662-1784, 1806-1826.

Ciudad Real
Ciudad Real > Herencia > Nuestra Señora de la Concepción > Índice de matrimonios 1570-1596 year span should read as
Indice de Matrimonios 1570-1640.

Gerona
Gerona > Alfar > San Martín > Indice de Bautismos 1772-1851 are located in Barcelona > Arenys de Mar > Santa María > Indice de Bautismos 1772-1851. For more information about what records are available, see the Catalog Film Notes for Film 1383896:
• Santa María (Arenys de Mar, Barcelona) - Item 1-2 Defunciones 1851-1909 (párvulos)
• San Martín (Alfar, Gerona) - Items 3-4 Bautismos 1742-1851

Gerona > Albañá > San Pedro > Matrimonios 1796-1851 and Matrimonios 1834-1851 both contain the same 20 images. There is no Matrimonio 1796-1851. For more information about what records are available, see the Catalog Film Notes for Film 1385113:
• Item 2: Bautismos 1830-1857 Indice de matrimonios 1796-1851 Matrimonios 1834-1851
• Item 4: Bautismos 1830-1857 Indice de matrimonios 1796-1851 Matrimonios 1834-1851 (otra filmación del tomo anterior) (another filming of the previous volume)
• Item 6: Matrimonios 1852-1896.

Gerona > Breda > Santa María > Bautismos 1662-1739: the path changes back to Barcelona > Arenys de Munt > San Martín > Bautismos 1662-1826. This is attributed to a shared digital film and is called a wandering breadcrumb. For more information about what records are available, see the Catalog Film Notes for Film 1171856: Bautismos 1662-1784, 1806-1826.

Gerona >Gerona >San Feliu and Gerona >Gerona >San Félix are the same locality. The Catalog listing is San Felíu (Gerona, Gerona), Registros parroquiales de San Félix, 1502-1899. You should search in both localities for records.

Gerona > Gerona > San Feliu > Matrimonios 1762-1851 are actually Defunciones 1762-1851 (includes an index, death records, and non-indexed children deaths). For more information about what records are available, see the Catalog Film Notes for 1171881.

Gerona > La Bisbal > Santa María: the records for Defunciones and Matrimonios are split into two separate parishes, both with the same name of Santa María. You should search in both localities for records.

Gerona > San Juan de las Abadesas > San Juan y Pol is missing some records. For more information about what records are available, see the Catalog Film Notes for Film 2399541, Items 1-6: Indice, matrimonios 1738-1776 -- Matrimonios 1890-1921 -- Información matrimonial 1779-1805 -- Testamentos 1824 -- Matrimonios 1922-1942 -- Matrimonios 1857-1878 -- Confirmaciones 1859-1866 -- Indice de matrimonios 1857-1877 -- Matrimonios 1878-1896.

Salamanca
Salamanca > Bogajo > Nuestra Señora del Peral > Indice de Matrimonios 1680-1747 are actually Indice de Bautismos 1680-1747. For more information about what records are available, see the Catalog Film Notes for Film 1104650 Bautismos, 1595-1747 – Matrimonios, 1597-1663.

Question #2: In Panama, Catholic Church Records, 1707-1973, I found records in the province of Burgos. There is no such province in Panama. Where do the records in this province belong?
Answer #2: The Burgos > La Aguilera > San Cristóbal > Partidas bautismales 1752-1854 are church records for La Aguilera, Burgos, Spain. They apparently were found in a folder from Aguadulce, Coclé, Panama, and were erroneously mixed into Panama records.
