Known Issues

NOTE: To determine which digital records are likely to be found within a collection or to find missing images, see, Using Film Notes in the Catalog to determine the content of a final browse point in Historical Records (56000).

NOTE: Most missing records are available on microfilm. See Ordering a microfilm or microfiche (55678). To view films, see Finding a family history center near you (54018).

NOTE: While the indexed records are available, FamilySearch has limited rights, granted by the record custodian, to publish images for viewing online. Images are only available for viewing to members of the sponsoring organization (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), and at family history centers.

Question #1: Some records are missing. Where can the records be viewed?
Answer #1: Some census pages have no corresponding index records, and some record detail pages are missing Digital Folder Numbers and Image Numbers. See answers below for information about known missing records and respective film numbers, if available, or alternate online location:

  • Census records for Pymosa, Cass County, Iowa are not indexed and can be found in the browse path Iowa, Non-Population Census Schedules, 1850-1880 > 1880 Agriculture Schedule > Cass > Image 31-48 of 130.

Question #2: Only some of the family members are listed in the record detail pages. How can I locate the entire family?
Answer #2: If a family group begins on the bottom of a census page, and continues at the top of the next census page, the family members are generally not grouped together. Search for the head of the household as a spouse or parent to yield search results for the remaining family group.
In other cases, family members were just not indexed as a family group. Assemble family groups by viewing the images online or ordering the microfilm.

Question #3: The record detail page is linked to the wrong image. How can I find the correct image?
Answer #3: From the record detail page, use the Event Place, District, Sheet Number and Letter, Film Number, Digital Folder Number, and Image Number to find the correct image by using the right or left scroll arrow. In most instances, the correct image is adjacent to the incorrect image.
