Russia, Lutheran Church Book Duplicates - FamilySearch Historical Records/Known Issues
Problem 1: The transcripts are bound in individual volumes covering one year periods. Frequently smaller communities were grouped in the same bound copy. For example, Novgorod contains records for Olonets, Vologda, Kostromo and Jaroslavl' also.
When you move from image to image the collection heading will change to reflect the communities in the record, even though you may start from only one of the several villages/towns listed.
Problem 2: I’ve signed in, so why are the images still unavailable?
