Known Issues[edit | edit source]

Question 1[edit | edit source]

Question 1: There seems to be some confusion with the Jones County images. Can you help to clarify this?
Answer 1: In Jones County, the right side pages do not match with the left side in the original filmed volume. It appears at some point the pages could have been dropped and not placed back in the volume correctly. This is shown by job occupations that cannot be correct. However, the indexed information does not include any data from the right hand page.

Question 2[edit | edit source]

Question 2: My ancestor has been combined with the wrong family. Can I find the correct family?
Answer 2: There are instances where the indexer incorrectly combined the families. Usually the record details page links to the correct image. If you find discrepancies, you can look at the image to see the correct associations.
