Is it possible to see an original record that was extracted by automated process?
I found this record extracted by an automated process and was wondering if it was possible to view the original image https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:6DKR-5J4N I have an ancestor named Marcelino Ysidoro or Ysidoro Marcelino from Matanzas, Cuba. This record shows a Ysidoro Marcelina (male) so if that is not a last name it is is likely Marcelino and there is a Candelaria Abreu on the page, along with some single name (just first or last name) entries which makes me wonder if the name was extracted from a baptism certificate which often has parents, grandparents and other names on the record. A long shot but location is right, the year is close enough to my ancestor's birth year to make a look at the original image worthwhile.
@Humberto Abreu The link I supplied above has color digital images of baptisms from the Catedral de San Carlos Borromeo, Matanzas, Matanzas, Cuba in the time period of your ancestor.0
@Humberto Abreu Trying again. The images on the site cannot be downloaded. The record for Candelaria Abreu starts at the bottom of one page and finishes at the top of the next.1
A link to the specific register, covering 1884-1887: https://archive.slavesocieties.org/volume?id=22614
There are no links to the individual pages. The index begins on Image 417 of 442 images.
The record for Candelaria Abreu is on Image 167 of 442 (page 163 stamped in the upper right corner).
Hope this helps.2
Thank you for your enquiry. You can look up the original document at your local family history centre. If one is not near by then use the familysearch look up service at familysearch.org/en/family-history-library/record-lookup-service.0
Humberto Abreu I'm not sure what time period you are researching, but if you are researching during the colonial period of Cuba, which is essentially before the 1860s, you can likely find records in Spanish and Hapsburg collections. If you already know this, I didn't mean to insult you. I find many people don't think there is an overlap of genealogy and history.0

The catalog names Vanderbilt University as the "author" of those records, and interestingly doesn't have any access indicators -- no camera, no film reel, nothing.
I'd be interested in seeing what @PMLynch sees in the catalog, and am curious whether the Family History Library's (not FamilySearch's) Lookup Service can actually access these images or not.1
Sometimes, when there is no reel/camera/key icon, it is an indicator of newly acquired records that have been imported. Certainly, Vanderbilt has digitized many records from the Spanish Territories, including Florida before it became a state. I have some wonderful examples from their collection for my family from the early 1800s.
Some of those Vanderbilt records are online on other sites.
Edit to add: Some of the Cuban records can be seen here: https://www.slavesocieties.info/cuba1
Thanks everyone. I appreciate the answers. I will see if there are microfiche records at my local family history center for this extraction.0
Thank you very much for your above and beyond helpfulness. I really appreciate it. I apologize for not answering sooner but was out.1
