Known Issues

Question: I am not getting consistent search results by using just a town name. Is there a work-around for this problem?
Answer: First, keep in mind that this collection currently only has baptismal records, so you should search using the BIRTHPLACE and BIRTH DATE only. Check with the collection home page Description for any changes to the records content. Second, the work around requires using valid county names (those with + by them) or other major localities within the BIRTHPLACE field. A list is provided below:
