Known Issues[edit | edit source]

Question 1[edit | edit source]

Question 1: I get a message “Image not available” even after I have registered and signed in. Why can’t I view these images?
Answer 1: FamilySearch has limited rights, granted by the record custodians, to publish images from this collection for viewing online. Images for this collection are only available for viewing to members of the sponsoring organization (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints).

FamilySearch, however, has other resources which are available to all researchers. These online records, and many others for this area, are available on microfilm at the Family History Library and some FamilySearch Centers. It is best that you check with your local FamilySearch Center about whether they have the films if you wish to view.

Another resource to visit is the Genealogical Research Community. Go to the link to register, and then scroll down to Russia. There are two communities, one for English and one for Russian.

If you have a Church account and are not able to view the images after signing in, it may be due to a registration problem and not an image problem. Please call 866-406-1830 in the United States or contact patron services at support@familysearch.org. Please include a brief description of the problem, and steps taken so far to resolve the issue.

Question 2[edit | edit source]

Question 2: When searching Russia Tver Church Books, 1722-1918 Тверь (Tver) > Бежецк (Bezhetsk) > Бежецк > (уезд) (Bezhetsk (County)) > 1814 Vol. 15463 Births, marriages, deaths (Рождения, бракосочетания, смерти) and 1828 Vol. 15304 Births, marriages, deaths (Рождения, бракосочетания, смерти), where are the rest of the images?
Answer 2: These two groups of records each come from two films. The films for the first part of the registers were published, but the films for the second part were not. Until the second part of the film is published, these films can be viewed at the Family History Library and some FamilySearch Centers. The two films numbers for the films that are not online are:

  • 1814 Vol. 15463 Births, marriages, deaths (Рождения, бракосочетания, смерти) is film 2267626 Item 1
  • 1828 Vol. 15304 Births, marriages, deaths (Рождения, бракосочетания, смерти) is film 2039263 Items 1 - 2
