Known Issues

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

Question #1: The record details page for my ancestor links to an incorrect image. Is there a way to find the correct image?
Answer #1: In most cases the correct image can be found by matching the page number on the record details page with the page number on the image. You may have to scroll forward or backward a few images to find the correct one.
However, is some cases, the correct image may have been incorrectly located in a different browse point. Usually these were counties that were adjacent on the film. For example, Sherburnen > Big Lake > Image 7 of 7 contains Pages 1-2 that are missing from Sherburnen > Clear Lake.
