Notes[edit | edit source]

NOTE: Many of the records in the civil registration have files connected to the wrong records. This link: Wegwijzer in de wondere wereld van FamilySearch also known as Genver, contains a list of all the problems that have been reported thus far and the correct location of the desired records. This site is being updated as needed. The information is in Dutch.

NOTE: For a way to determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection or how to find missing images elsewhere, see Article 56000, Using Film Notes in the Catalog to determine the content of a final waypoint in Historical Records.

NOTE: Most missing records are available on microfilm which can be viewed at the Family History Library or some FamilySearch Centers.

Known Issues[edit | edit source]

Question 1[edit | edit source]

Question 1: Sometimes I get a message “Image not Available” for some of the records even when I am signed in. How can I view these records?
Answer 1: Whenever possible, FamilySearch makes images available for all users. However, ultimate rights to view images on our website are granted by the record custodians. FamilySearch is in the process of resolving contracts issues.

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:

  • Amerongen > Geboorten, huwelijken 1883-1892 Tienjarige tafels 1883-1892: Births for 1891 are missing from both the online records and on Film 417918.
  • Breukelen-Nijenrode > Geboorten, huwelijken, overlijden, huwelijksbijlagen, huwelijksafkondigingen 1812-1814 Tienjarige tafels 1813-1842 only contains 311 of the 702 images found on Film 121435.
  • Hoogland > Geboorten, huwelijken, overlijden, huwelijksbijlagen, huwelijksafkondigingen 1815-1820 only contains 415 of the 728 images found on Film 121493.

Question 3[edit | edit source]

Question 3: Why do some record sets include records of a type other than that described in the set title; i.e., births, deaths, marriages, and divorces may be mixed together?
Answer 3: The original records are of mixed type. Birth, marriage and death records are in one book, and in some cases, more than one record type is found on the same page. Not much can be done to resolve that, so the collection was organized with three sets of the same images in numerical order. One set for births, one for deaths and one for marriages. The resulting combination of record sets usually appear alphabetically by type, e.g., Geboorten records appear first, followed by Huwelijken, Overlijden, etc.

Question 4[edit | edit source]

Question 4: 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 4: The following list of known waypoint discrepancies describes the event type or year range that actually exist in this collection:

  • Utrecht > Huwelijken 1915-1919 years span should be 1915-1920.
  • Woudenberg > Geboorten 1883-1892 Huwelijken 1883-1892 Overlijden 1883-1892 > Images 4-18 of 510 are retakes for Wijk Bij Duurstede.
