Known Issues[edit | edit source]

Question 1[edit | edit source]

Question 1: 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 1: 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 2[edit | edit source]

Question 2: There are missing pages throughout this collection. Are these images available?
Answer 2: 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 waypoints that have missing images:

Question 5[edit | edit source]

Answer 6: See below:

  • The records for Catholic > Frýdek-Místek > Bystřice nad Olší > Burials (Pohřby) after 1890 cannot be found at FamilySearch.

Answer 7: Czech Republic, Church Books, 1552-1948 > Catholic > Svitavy > Blatina > Burials (Pohřby) 1858-1898 (v.

Since these records are direct capture, there are no films to be reviewed or ordered; therefor the remaining volumes are not found on FamilySearch.
