Earthell Hatteie McLaughlin - 20 July 1892 – 1962 • M3J7-QF9
Why are these ord unavailable?
Thank you for contacting FamilySearch Community. The ordinances for Earthell Hatteie McLaughlin • M3J7-QF9 are now ready to request.
I see multiple 'similar' questions posted in Community.
I was told that these would be clipped from the 'public' Community and put into a private/non-public site. Since I can see dozens of similar requests - it looks like these ordinance issues are being discussed in public view. Perhaps I only see these because it is in a member-only section.
If they are 'public' - Why would we think that this is appropriate? If they are 'public' please correct that - and make these types of questions 'private'.
Also - why are so many records coming up as 'ordinances unavailable'?
Is there a pattern to these records getting tagged as unavailable? Is there an obvious fix that could be implimented - or is the fix-them as we find-them approach the best practice right now?
Hello @Thomas Jay Kemp
There are many reasons for a "Not Available" message. This knowledge article explains some - https://www.familysearch.org/en/help/helpcenter/article/in-family-tree-what-does-not-available-mean
The best way to have the issue sorted to contact Support via Community or via email. Each situation can be different so a global fix isn't possible.
