Known Issues

Question #1: I am looking for an ancestor from Minnesota who doesn’t appear in that state. Are there any additional cards from Minnesota?
Answer #1: Yes, there is a series of cards from Minnesota that appear to have been misfiled with Mississippi cards. They can be located on images 40-96 in the Mississippi > Marshall County; A-Z browse point.

Question #2: I can’t locate an ancestor who should have registered in Giles County, Virginia. Are there records missing from there?
Answer #2: DGS 5153688 has records from both Frederick County and Giles County. The Giles County records were inadvertently indexed as being from Frederick County. Images 1-3947 in the Virginia > Frederick County; A-Z waypoint are from Frederick County. Images 3948-5645 are from Giles County.
