Known Issues[edit | edit source]

Question 1[edit | edit source]

Question 1: Some indexed records have been attributed to the wrong locality or with incorrect dates. How can I determine the correct marriage information?
Answer 1: The event place and date can be checked on original town or county records or the microfilm of such records, when available.
The following is a list of known problems relating to incorrect indexing information:

  • All of the marriage dates associated with Batch I00949-5 and Film 843957 are death dates. This can be confirmed by searching for the same person in the Massachusetts, Deaths, 1841-1915 collection and viewing the image of the actual death record.
  • Records associated with Batch I09671-7 and Film 482918 are correctly listed with an Event Place: Goshen, Sullivan, New Hampshire.
