1840 Census, Kentucky, Harlan county, some records skipped during indexing
I am researching the Harlan County, Kentucky federal census for 1840 and discovered that not all the entries have been indexed. Some names have skipped. For comparison purposes, I have attached 2 screenshots of the same image, one from FamilySearch and the other from Ancestry.
Is this the appropriate forum to ask that this be corrected? It seems a very sad mistake.

See my response on your other thread on the same topic. https://community.familysearch.org/en/discussion/120084/1840-census-kentucky-harlan-county-records-were-skipped-during-indexing-how-to-fix#latest0
To put context into why I was so upset when I discovered this. Two of the family groups I am researching are associated with the surnames Fee and Noe. I only noticed Manning Noe when I was recording the date ranges of David Fee's children, and since Manning is not indexed, he would not be returned on a search.0
