== Known Issues with This Collection ==
  
Use this index to help you learn more about your ancestors. The information could help you identify family relationships and lineages as well as direct you to original records of your ancestors, which may contain additional information.  
+
{{HR Known Issues}}For a full list of all known issues associated with this collection see the attached [[Virginia Births and Christenings (FamilySearch Historical Records)/Known Issues|Wiki article]]. If you encounter additional problems, please email them to [mailto:support@familysearch.org support@familysearch.org]. Please include the full path to the link and a description of the problem in your e-mail. Your assistance will help ensure that future reworks will be considered.  
  
In birth or christening records, if a surname is not listed for the child, the indexer often assigns the father’s surname to the child. This surname may not be correct. So if you are looking for a birth or christening, search by the given name of the child, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.

Citing FamilySearch Historical Collections

A suggested format for keeping track of records that you have searched is found in the wiki article Help:How to Cite FamilySearch Collections.
