Known Issues[edit | edit source]

Question #1: How can I find the source film number for the indexed information?
Answer #1: You can use the FamilySearch Catalog to locate the relevant Union Workhouse film, if the location is known. You can then order the film to the nearest FamilySearch Center.
You may wish to use Photoduplication Services in conjunction with the FamilySearch Catalog to locate the source for the entry.

Question #2: How complete is the indexed information and are there other sources available to learn about the workhouse system?
Answer #2: The Genealogical Society of Utah filming of surviving Poor Law Union records does not include the Wirral Union and therefore FamilySearch indexing volunteers were not able to include this Union in the collection.

Cheshire Poor Law Unions gives information about the county workhouse system and unions.
