Known Issues

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

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:
