Indiana Marriages,1811-2019 for Montgomery County, Indiana - marriage place incorrectly transcribed
RE: An entire batch of Montgomery County, Indiana marriages, with few exceptions, have the place incorrectly transcribed as Montgomery, Medocino County, California instead of Montgomery County, Indiana.
I believe this link contains the batch number: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:Z1VL-T86Z
I’m sending this with great hopes this batch of records/ images can be reindexed.
I received a notification this week that someone had attached a record for Reuben Faust who is one of my ancestors that I follow. The record showed a Robert Faust instead of Reuben Faust. I also noticed that it showed he was married in Montgomery, Medocino, California. I pulled up the actual image. The record does match other details from other records – It is likely Reuben sounded like Robert to the recording clerk.
Reuben Faust, LZ36-2F4 and Caroline Beck, KCR3-9K3

In this record it is shown that Robert Faust married Caroline Beck. The given name of Robert is an error in the original record and should be Reuben. The marriage date is correct. The place is correct on the record on the image as well.
However, the location has been transcribed incorrectly. It should be Montgomery County, Indiana. This is also the case for the second entry on the same image which shows the record of marriage of Enoch White and Catharine Munger.
It’s likely the autofill completed the place to read Montgomery, Medocino, California, United States. Montgomery is a city in Medocino County in California.
This is, of course, incorrect, as Crawfordsville, Montgomery County, Indiana is found throughout the documents.
The most serious problem in these batches is that almost without exception through most all of the images – the same error is repeated.
Is there any way to have these reindexed?
Is see the errors and I know the place is transcribed incorrectly. I can fix my family’s particular information.
But what about all of the images? There are almost 672 images that for the most part are done incorrectly.
This will make research as well as temple records incorrect as well.
I would hope there is a way to go in and fix the errors.
I'm happy to help any way I can.
