Known Issues

Question: #1: On the details page the marriage place is listed as Raleigh, Craven, North Carolina. Raleigh is in Wake County. How can I view the image to see the correct information?
Answer #1: The original record shown on film 288298 shows that these records were recorded as Raleigh, Craven County, North Carolina. However, the correct county should be Wake County.
The images are available on microfilm which can be ordered from the Family History Library to a FamilySearch Center for viewing. See: Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche

Question #2: Why does the Collection name say Marriages 1759-1979 when there are records included both before and after those dates?
Answer #2: The dates in the Collection name are incorrect.

Question #3: Why do I find marriages from South Carolina in the North Carolina Collection?
Answer #3: Many indexed records for South Carolina have been mistakenly included in the North Carolina marriage collection.
