Known Issues[edit | edit source]

NOTE: To determine which digital records are likely to be found within a collection or to find missing images, see, Using Film Notes in the Catalog to determine the content of a final browse point in Historical Records (56000).

NOTE: Mexico National Census, 1930 was the fifth census conducted after 1895. Mexico attempted to keep a national census in 1868 and 1878, but the census was not accepted well by the people. Later, in 1900, the census was more successful and followed every 10 years. The most complete census is 1930, which, until recently, has only been available at Mexico’s National Archives. See the Mexico Census wiki for general census information.

  • The record detail pages with an Event Place: Carcel Municipal, Acámbaro, Guanajuato, Mexico should be listed as Event Place: Acámbaro, Acámbaro, Guanajuato, Mexico. The associated Film Number is Film 1464213, Items 4-6.
  • The record detail pages with an Event Place: San José Del Fizonazo, Indé, Durango, Mexico should be spelled San José Del Tizonazo.
  • The record detail pages with an Event Place: Temósachic, Temósachic, Chihuahua, Mexico correctly link to the respective images. However, browse capability is not available.
