Known Issues[edit | edit source]

Question 1[edit | edit source]

Question 1: The Event Type and Year Range (waypoint) title does not properly reflect the actual digital record content. Is there a way to determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection?
Answer 1: The following list of known waypoint discrepancies describes the event type or year range that actually exist in this collection:

  • Chiquimula > Chiquimula > Nuestra Señora de la Asunción > Matrimonios 1926-1931 and Defunciones 1699-1778 have records that are transposed. The marriage records are in Defunciones 1699-1778; and the death records are in Matrimonios 1926-1931.
  • Quiché > Santa Cruz del Quiché > Santa Cruz> Bautismos 1847-1931 contains Bautismos 1929-1931 and Confirmaciones 1847-1912 (see Film Notes for Film 794798). The confirmations start with image 281 to End of roll.

Question 2[edit | edit source]

Question 2: Some records are missing. Where can they be viewed?
Answer 2: See answers below for information about known missing records and their respective film numbers, if available, or alternate online location.

  • Chimaltenango > Tecpán > San Francisco > Bautismos 1788-1813 is missing page 4 from Item 2. The page is not found on the microfilm.

Question 3[edit | edit source]

Question 3: I cannot make heads or tails out of several waypoints in Guatemala > Mixco > Santo Domingo. Would you breakdown the contents of these waypoints?
Answer 3: By reviewing the Catalog Film Notes located in Registros parroquiales, 1719-1931; Iglesia Católica. Santo Domingo (Mixco, Guatemala), you can better understand the content of the waypoints. The following waypoints have been identified as having a ‘complex’ content:
