FamilySearch Chistening Place field

Detail is incorrectly shown as "Norwich, Norfolk, England" in FamilySearch.  These records do not include Norwich, however, but relate to individual parishes in the Archdeaconry of Norfolk.  Unfortunately, parish names are not provided so the referenced film has to be fully read to find the appropriate record of the individual being searched. (There are several hundred parishes in the Archdeaconry - these are listed elsewhere.)

Answer: The England, Norfolk Bishop's Transcripts, 1685-1941 collection is a browse only set of records. As there is no Christening Place field in this collection, is it possible this discussion belongs in some other record collection? If there is an error in one of the publications, I suggest you send an email to FamilySearch advising of the error, providing details of the problem. Tomwilde 15:33, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
