Question #1: When performing a search for residents of Lawrence County, Tennessee and Lincoln County Tennessee using the “Search by Life Event: Residence” filter the message “No Results” is received. Are the records from these counties available?
Answer #1: The records from these two counties are available on film number 19368. The records for Lawrence County will be found on images 97-114. The records for Lincoln County are found on images 115-166. To order the film, see Ordering Microfilm and Microfiche. The film can then be viewed at your local Family History Center.
Question #2: When I type in Dayton, Montgomery, Ohio I get “no records found”. If I leave the county off and just type Dayton, Ohio I get several thousand results, but the residence is listed as Dayton, Miami, Ohio. Dayton is in Montgomery County. Why are these records mislabeled?
Answer #2: There was an error in the indexing of Dayton records. The residence should be Dayton, Montgomery, Ohio.
