On FamilySearch.org, you can now correct transcription errors for many of the collections on our site. Here are a few common reasons why you may not be able to correct a transcription error that you find.
- As of March 2020, the capability to edit incorrect dates and places may depend on language, location, and the collection where the record is stored. If you are unable to edit a date or place, please be patient. The capability is forthcoming.
- Some of the indexed records on FamilySearch.org do not have a corresponding image that can be used to validate the correction.
- FamilySearch may not own the index, and our agreement with the index owner may not allow for user-submitted corrections.
