How to report an error?
The bottom page link to report errors on FS has disappeared.
I still want to report an error.
On the ctalog of the Parish Records for Wevelgem, Belgium, film number: 293426
is labelled: Klapper op dopen 1648-1805 Klapper op trouwen, begraven 1754-1805 Dopen, trouwen, begraven 1748-1768
This very last section should read 1648-1768
Hope someone handles this; there is a hundred years of vauluable records available, but not announced as such.
If the link had remained it would currently serve no purpose. The Catalog is currently locked, whilst in a period of transition. We have been advised to take notes of any such errors and report them once the Catalog is open again for revision - sometime in 2022. There will be an announcement of the exact date closer to that time.1
this is what I meant:0
Yes, there are many such errors waiting to be addressed. As I have said, it's probably best to re-report this once the Catalog becomes open for editing in 2022.1
Page 211 of film
@rolandbeckett, the problem on image 221 of film 571397 appears to have been a problem in the initial photographing of that page. Notice the similar problems on image 208 and 212, although on these you're able to see some small portion of the page.
If you are interested, you can find this image of the society of friends record on the Find My Past website at https://search.findmypast.com/record/browse?id=IRE/QUAKER/ROB-RICHHILL-1859/0008. The quality and readability is excellent. This site does, however, require a paid subscription. It is possible that you might find the record on other sites on the internet, as well, but I was able to find it only on Find My Past.
The link for Find My Past is provided here:0
I think the FIND page is entirely too large. It is kind of a shock to open and find the whole page is dedicated to only on thing. TOO LARGE, PLEASE FIX.0
A correction at my parents marriage certification from Catedral de San Pedro, Cali, Valle del Cauca, Colombia, Arquidiocesis de Cali.
- The whole reference at the end says "Arquidiocesis de Cartagena", it should be " Arquidiosesis de Cali."
- My father's dad name was Gerardo Mejia Velez, NOT Livardo.
- My father's mother name was Libia Upegui , NOT Libia Upegi.
Please when able correct it. My dad was Jaime Daniel Mejia.

Image Dct. 02022, but it is not opening to anything.
Appreciate your corrections to that information. The marriage date is properly reported and also the place in Cali, etc.0
I'll wait and see when the Catalog is open for editing. But this is a major transcription error affecting many records:
This is not St. John, Virgin Islands. It is St. John, the parish in Grenada. And all records from this sequence on DGS 007549660 have the same error.
Unfortunately, I have seen many trees on Ancestry where people took this at face value and the error is spreading across trees. Many people are assuming their ancestor emigrated from the Virgin Islands to Grenada. Things like this need to be corrected fairly quickly. The problem compounds as long as the Catalog is locked.0
@Craigallyn, that's an autostandardization error. It has absolutely nothing to do with the catalog.1
@Craigallyn, as Julia Szent-Györgyi has indicated, the issue that you describe concerning the Grenada and Virgin Islands is not a transcription error, but is a standardization problem. FamilySearch has used computers to automatically standardize the place names associated with various events. In your case, the computer assumed, incorrectly, that the birth or baptism occurred in the island of St. John, in the Virgin Islands.
The example that you provided, for Mary Romney, was taken from the Collection, Grenada Births and Baptisms, 1866-1891; so, clearly, the computer is wrong in assuming that the event occurred anywhere but in Grenada. In fact, the computer was wrong nearly 4,000 times in this instance.
I will add this issue to the queue of problems for our engineers to review and resolve. Unfortunately, I cannot suggest when the problem will be fixed.
I appreciate that you have made us aware of this problem.4
So, it is now 2023 and the question still stands, how do I report an error?

There is an option to edit but it only allows for editing the event date or event place. There is no way to address the fact that the index is reporting William as the 5yr old male 'SISTER'.... instead of 5yr old male 'SON'.0
The original post here is about reporting errors in the Catalog. You are reporting an error in the indexing of a census record.
At this time, only certain fields are available to edit in this collection, so you cannot amend this to read "Son" rather than "Sister". Unfortunately, FamilySearch (administration) does not make changes to indexed records, so this error will have to stand, at least for the time being.
There is an intention to make all fields available for editing in future, but there is no timescale for this. All you can do for now is to add this record to William's Sources section in Family Tree and note the relationship error as you do so.1
