Known Issues

Question #1: There are missing pages throughout this collection. Are these images available?
Answer #1: Some pages were not captured by the camera operator when the volume was filmed. This could be due to the camera operator missing a page or the page(s) could be missing from the original record. We do not have microfilms of these records. You may contact: STATNI OBLASTNI ARCHIV V LITOMERICICH (CZECH REPUBLIC), the original source of these records. They may be able to check information from the missing pages. On the landing page for this site, in the upper right corner are three flags followed by the words: Čeština, English, Deutsch. If you click on one of those words the website displays in that language.
We currently are aware of the following missing images:
• Path: Catholic > Děčín > Jiřetín pod Jedlovou. Missing L61-vol. 3.
• Path: Catholic > Česká Lípa > Horní Libchava > Baptisms, marriages, 1691-1739 (v. L43-1A). The double page which should contain entries 27 through 37 is missing
• Path: Catholic >Liberec-> Frýdlant v Čechách>Baptisms, marriages, burials (Křty, sňatky, pohřby) 1784-1818 (v. L37-16). Pages 153-154 missing, between images 81-82 and pages 104-105 between images 219-220.
• Path: Catholic>Liberec-> Habartice> Index baptisms, marriages, burials (Index pokřtěných, oddaných, pohřbených) 1784-1814 (v. 39-Index B). Page 444 is missing between images 29-30. Page 444 is the rest of S and T in the index.

Question #2: Is the location for Czech Republic, Church Books, 1552-1948 > Catholic > Nový Jičín > Trnávka > Baptisms (Křty) 1788-1884 (vol. 6704) correctly identified?
Answer #2: There is a Trnavka in the Novy Jicin district, but there is another Trnavka in the Prerov district (Okres). Possibly, that is the Trnavka to which this book, Catholic Baptisms, 1788-1884, vol 6704, belongs. The following link to the Czech Achives will allow one to search for the records in correct context, but unfortunately a link cannot be provided to the exact records in question as such links timeout:

Question #3: Sometimes when I search for a record, the images are not there, or the message says “Image Not Available.” How do I find these records?
Answer #3: Whenever possible, FamilySearch makes images available for all users. However, ultimate rights to view images on our website are granted by the record custodians. Data Privacy rules prohibit viewing the following records: All birth images must be 100 years or older; all marriage images must be 75 years or older, and all death images must be 75 years or older.

If any record on a digital folder contains birth records from the last 100 years, for example, the entire digital folder is restricted.

The Historical Records collections will be updated each year to show new unrestricted records. FamilySearch respects and strives to adhere to all privacy laws respective to preserving and providing access to genealogical records in its collection.

Question #4: When searching in Czech Republic, Church Books, 1552-1948 > Catholic > Nový Jičín > Senov, I find the records are mixed between Nový Jičín > Senov and Ostrava-Město> Šenov. How can I determine which records are from which County?
Answer #4: Each of the listings has a volume (vol) number in the title. Those titles beginning with 2XXX are from Nový Jičín > Senov and those beginning with 3XXX are from Ostrava-Město> Šenov.

Question #5: When searching this collection in the county of Náchod and the town/city of Borová, I find images that are really from the county of Svitavy and city of Borová. How can I find the records for which I am originally looking – Náchod County?
Answer #5: At this time FamilySearch does not have the images Borová in Náchod County. These images are direct capture images which means they do not have associated films with them.
