Mexico, México, Civil Registratoin, 1878, Tultitlán — errors in index
Link https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-G5HC-J18?i=524&cc=1916244 .
First of all, on image 525, certificate number 108, page 6 verso, birth registration of Lorenzo Tiburcio //, the source clearly indicates the father's name (Antonio Salas: "...se presento en este juzgado el C. Antonio Salas, ..." [presented himself in this court the citizen Antonio Salas], "hi|jo del comparente y de su Esposa" [son of the appearant and of his wife]). but the idex does not list a father, and there's no way to add a father using the "Edit" feature.
Then on the right half of that image, page 7 folio, there's an ehtry in the source without a certificate number that has not been indexed at all. It's a delayed birth registration of the young woman Maria Juana de la Trinidad //, already married to Felix /Aguirre/, in which her father, Teofilo Julian //, age 55, reports that he is her "natural" father and requests that, since he has no other heirs, she be allowed to inherit as his child. (Mother Mª Ana /Monroy/).
Then on the next image, page 7 verso, the record for the first certificate has at least two errors I can't fix with "Edit":
- The child was a girl, not a boy. (The source clearly says "hija del exponente" [daughter of the declarant]).
- The father's name is in the record, Manuel Sandoval, but has not been indexed.
The two other records on that image also each are missing the father's name even though in each case it is present in the source.
Looking at https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-G5HC-VHV?i=525&cc=1916244 ...
First of all, on the image before, image 525, page 6 verso, certificate Nº 108, the index omits the name of the father, Antonio /Salas/, even though it's clear from the source.
Also on the image before, right side, there's a whole entry (starting two lines from the top on page 7 folio) that has not been indexed at all. Now that entry is a delayed birth registration, in which the father, Teofilo Julian //, age 55, reports that the already-married young woman María Juana de la Trinidad // was his "natural" daughter, and her husband's name and mother's name. (In other words, she was born out of wedlock and his declaration is an act to legitimate her; he also mentions that he has no heirs and he wants her to inherit from him.) No birthdate is specified in the entry, and perhaps for that reason the scribe did not assign it a certificate number, but there is enough information there to index.
Then on image 526, all three entries in the index have no information about the father, even though in each case the source clearly has the name of the father (in each case the declarant).
If the father's name had been indexed incorrecly, I could fix it with "Edit"; but that doesn't give me an option to add a father who was never indexed in the first place!
Also on the first entry for image 526, page 7 verso, certificate Nº 109, the child's gender is wrong. The source clearly says "hija del comparente" (daughter of the declarant), not "hijo" (son), but the entry has been indexed with a Sex of "Male". But there's no option to edit that in "Edit"!0

@davidleelambert We apologize for the errors made by our volunteer indexers in these Mexican Civil Registration records. After a record collection has been indexed and published, FamilySearch does not re-open the project to correct indexing errors. For some of these, you can click Edit at the top of a record details page and make needed corrections as you encounter errors for your family.
If an erroneous field is not editable, you have 2 options:
--you can go ahead and attach the source, making note of the error in the "reason to attach" field.
--you can click to view the image. On the image viewer, look in the upper right and click Source Box and then Add to Source Box. Then you can add the record from the source box, bypassing the indexed version of it.0
