How can I report an incorrectly indexed Family Search source?
Hi there! Today I came across a source in Family Search that has been incorrectly indexed. It was a US Census from 1850; here's the link: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M6J5-DQK. The person I've been working on, Domenicus or Dommicus Carman, is listed with his wife Elizabeth and their grandson Tristram. His and his wife's ages are listed as 55 and 51, respectively. However, that doesn't match the timeline of their lives. I thought it could have just been different people, but there is a matching census for the same year and place on Ancestry that has them and their ages listed correctly as 85 and 81: https://www.ancestry.com/discoveryui-content/view/9379506:8054?tid=&pid=&queryId=5504ee7d0bad558a2c91579e4f33c2bb&_phsrc=Tvj9&_phstart=successSource. When you look closely at the Family Search source, you can tell it actually says 85 and 81. However, I don't see anywhere that I can report the incorrect information or correct the ages. Does anyone know how to do this? Thank you!
We see the transcription error in FamilySearch so we went to look to see if the record is editable. You can edit the record but not the age at this time. You can attach it to your family and explain the transcription error. Here is the link to an article that explains this further.
How can we get incorrect information removed. My great uncle Frank Roper son of Joseph Roper and Ellen Sweeney did not marry Aletta Albinus Watt and one person has entered the marriage on their tree and many others have copied this information plus they have incorrectly added the rest of my Roper family without checking.
If famlysearch wants to include Family Trees on their website I believe they have a responsibility that information added by their volunteers is accurate, and remove wrong information
Valerie, the Family Tree on FamilySearch is a single, communal, open-edit tree. This means that if there is an error in it, you can fix it yourself.0
