Question 1[edit | edit source]

Question 1: Some records are missing. Where can the records be viewed?
Answer 1: See answers below for information about known missing records and respective film numbers, if available, or alternate online location:

  • South Africa > Orange Free State > Reddersburg > Baptisms or christenings 1861-1900: Birth records #482 - #488 are missing between Images 70-71 but are located on Image 86.

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:

  • South Africa > Orange Free State > Bethlehem > Baptisms or christenings 1922-1955 are marriage records.
  • South Africa > Transvaal > Zeerust > Memberships 1899-1943 should read as Baptisms 1899-1959, Memberships 1899-1915.
  • Transvaal > Colesberg waypoints belong in Cape of Good Hope > Colesberg.
