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:

  • South Africa > Cape of Good Hope > Cape Town > Baptisms 1902-1905 year span should be 1902-1916.
  • South Africa > Transvaal > Brixton > Marriages 1931-1951 should be South Africa > Transvaal > Johannesburg-Wes > Marriages 1931-1951 (Film 1687002 Item 4).
  • South Africa > Transvaal > Jeppe > Marriages 1942-1952 should be South Africa > TransvaaL > Johannesburg-Oos > Marriages 1942-1952 (Film 1687002 Item 1 includes records from other towns).
  • South Africa > Transvaal > Turffontein > Marriages 1931-1956 should be South Africa > Transvaal > Johannesburg-Suid > Marriages 1931-1956 (Film 1687002 Item 2 includes records from other towns).

Question 2[edit | edit source]

Question 2: The Event Places associated with Film 1687002 are incorrect (all the indexed records include “Cape of Good Hope”). How can we determine the correct event place for each indexed record?
Answer 2: Beside simply viewing the document, the correct event place can be determined by cross-referencing the Image Number found in the record detail page with the item number listed below, and then cross reference the item number with the Catalog Items listed for Film 1687002 (see NOTE above).
