Known Issues[edit | edit source]

Question 1[edit | edit source]

Question 1: The images of Mayer L. Bloom (Baltimore City > B > Bloom, Mayer L (400-55)) are linked to someone else. Can you tell me where to find the correct images?
Answer 1: On DGS 4741766 there are four records that are linked incorrectly:

  • Mayer L. Bloom record details page is linked to Maria Louisa Hyman -images 78-85
  • Maria Louisa Hyman record details page is linked to Ida Isabelle Bennett -images 52-59
  • Ida Isabelle Bennett record details page is linked to Frederick Heine – images 60-67
  • Frederick Heine record details page is linked to Mayer L. Bloom – Images 68-77

Question 2[edit | edit source]

Question 2: When I am searching Cecil > F > Frazer, J Frank (1939-43), I see records for the estate of Joseph Irwin France. Where are the Frank Frazer records?
Answer 2: Images 2- 76 of 98 images are the estate of Joseph Irwin France, then images 77-98 revert to the estate of J Frank Frazer. It would appear that the title page was misplaced in this film and has caused both of these estates to be included under one name.

Question 3[edit | edit source]

Question 3: When I am searching Cecil > G > Gibson, Benjamin (1864-25), I see records for the estate of Emily Galloway. Where are the Benjamin Gibson records?
Answer 3: The first frame is the title page for Benjamin Gibson. The next 34 frames of the record all pertain to the probate of Emily Galloway's will. Apparently, the records for Benjamin Gibson are not to be found until the records are sorted through.

Question 4[edit | edit source]

Question 4: When searching the file Queen Anne's > L > Lynch, William G, I find only records for Alexander (Andrew) Birch. Where are the records for William G. Lynch?
Answer 4: The records for William G. Lynch are found in the folder Queen Anne's > B > Birch, Alexander (Andrew) (QA000000A107. There are records for Alexander Birch mixed among them.
