Question 2[edit | edit source]

Question 2: The Event Type and Year Range (waypoint) title does not properly reflect the actual digital record content. How can I determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection?
Answer 2: The list of known waypoint discrepancies describes the event type or year range existing in the collection:

  • Chapa de Mota > San Miguel Archangel > Bautismos 1851-1864, 1866-1871, 1873-1876 year span should be 1857-1871, 1873-1876. The Film 748913 is subdivided as follows:
Item 1: 1861-1866 (Image 5),
Item 2: 1857-1861 (Image 109),
Item 3: 1858-1861 (Image 218),
Item 4: 1861- 1864 (Image 308),
Item 5: 1866-1871 (Image 372), and
Item 6: 1873-1876 (Image 490).
  • Coacalco de Berriozábal > San Francisco de Asís contains records that could also belong in the browse path Tultitlán de Mariano Escobedo > San Antonio de Padua. Due to close proximity of the two towns, the records are intermixed. References to San Lorenzo, Tultitlán also occur because both churches of San Lorenzo (16th century) and San Antonio de Padua (18th century) are in Tultitlán.
  • San José Allende > San José > Defunciones 1754-1803 are found in Mexico, Guerrero, Catholic Church Records, 1576-1979 > Tixtla de Guerrero > San Martín > Defunciones 1854-1862, 1879-1959.
  • San José Allende > San José > Defunciones 1789-1824 year span should be 1803-1851.
  • Valle de Bravo > San Francisco de Asís > Bautismos 1886-1890 > Images 260-264 of 529 contain an incomplete set of random marriage index entries that correspond to actual marriage records in Valle de Bravo > San Francisco de Asís > Matrimonios 1906-1921 and Matrimonios 1921-1939.
