View Full Version : FMP Query

I was looking for baptisms for a family on FMP. familysearch said there were 3 between 1785 and 1789.

I found the 1785 baptism but the other 2 did not appear on the index. However if I paged forward, very slowly, I finally found the other 2 baptisms.

Is it normal for FMP to have images that are not indexed?

Have you tried searching for other names on the page? It's much more likely (so far as I can tell) that it is mistranscribed.

If you CAN find other names it might be worth reporting a transcription error and explaining what it is in the comment box.

You are a clever chook. The name seemed clear to me but obviously not.

Transcription correction has been done.

Lol! You at least know what it's supposed to be. I looked at one entry with birthplace left blank by the transcriber, went to correct it, and realised that the poor enumerator hadn't had a clue either:d I might know what it's supposed to be, but no way could I make out any of the letters that should be there.
