Question 2[edit | edit source]

Question 2: At the Launceston and country districts > Births > RGD 33/52 > 1874 B-W waypoint, the records seem to be either missing or out of order. Can you tell me how these records are organized?
Answer 2
: Generally the records are in alphabetical order by location but, because of film splicing there are some inconsistencies. The following is a list of known discrepancies:

  • Images 2 & 3 are out of order (should be switched),
  • Images 87 to 99 are out of sequence and hold births numbered 652 to 760 (Green Ponds, Hamilton, and Horton districts),
  • Image 100 is out of sequence and has births numbered 623 to 638 (Georgetown),
  • Images 101 to 111 are out of sequence and have births numbered 585 to 651 (Glamorgan, Gordon and Green Ponds districts),
  • Images 112 to 129 are out of sequence and have births numbered 404-568 (Fingal, Franklin and Georgetown districts),
  • Births numbered 569 to 584 (Georgetown) are not available at Family Search (Georgetown).
