Question #1: Some Bristol events have been attributed to the wrong parish. How can I determine the correct parish?

|St. Stephen's Parish||4242523|
|St Mary's Church, Tyndal Parish||4247023|
Question #2: The record detail pages show the film number to be the same as the digital folder number. Is this correct?
Answer #2: This collection has been captured directly to digital images. There are no microfilms available. Due to contract restrictions, some images may not be available online, or may be available at a local FamilySearch Center .
Question #3: There are birth and christening records from Gloucestershire Parish included in the Bristol Parish record sets. Is this correct?
Answer #3: Yes, the Diocese of Bristol covers the city itself, a number of parishes in southern Gloucestershire (north and east of the city), and a few parishes in north Somerset.
