Mexico, México, Catholic Church Records, 1567-1970: Incorrect Christening Dates
On the film "Mexico, México, Catholic Church Records, 1567-1970 > Cuautitlán de Romero Rubio > San Buenaventura > Bautismos 1820-1836", image 475, at https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:939X-Q1S4-W6?i=474&cc=1837908 , each of the eight indexed records has the same error that I can't fix with "Edit":
All the christening dates are in 1936, when they should all be in 1836.
It's true that the scribe only wote, for example, "En veinte de Febº de 36", using a two-digit year; earlier in the volume he sometimes wrote the year as "835". However, the volume only covers 1833-1836, according to the microfilmer's title slide on image 276.
Even image 464, where a large heading on the right-hand page clearly says "Mes de Enero del Año de 1836", has the same error! (Just the last three entries on that image, the ones in 1836; the ones in 1835 on that image are OK.)
All of the images back to 464, and forward to the end of the film (last indexed records on image 513), have the same problem.
@N Tychonievich Similar problem, same location, different film:
On the film "Mexico, México, Catholic Church Records, 1567-1970 > Cuautitlán de Romero Rubio > San Buenaventura > Bautismos 1883-1890", images 478 through 486, starting at https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:939X-7MF3-P?i=477&cc=1837908 , all of the christening dates are indexed as in 1885 when the records clearly say 1889 ("mil ochocientos ochenta y nueve").
These records have an "Edit" button, but the only option available to edit is the name. Is there someone who can make a mass-change to fix just the years on that range of images?0
@davidleelambert We reported the errors in years in several of the Mexico Catholic Church Records some time ago. Still waiting for a correction. Sorry for the delay.0
This could e dealt with by the indexing Team0
@N Tychonievich Thank you for the update. As I find other errors like these ones, should I report them in this thread, or is there a better channel for submitting them?
Here's another one I just found, at https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:6JQS-FRVN ...
Baptism date is indexed as 1795. It should be 1 November 1830. The entry for "Mª Ylaria" in the record begins, "En dcho en esta Parroqª ..."; "dcho" is an abbreviation for "dicho", meaning "the said", referring back to the previous entry, which begins "En 1º de nobᵉ de mil ochoctˢ treinta", where the date is an abbreviation for "primero de noviembre de mil ochocientos treinta".0
@N Tychonievich Another place where there's a pattern of wrong dates in the indexed records and the "Edit" does not allow changing that field...
Link https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:939X-DP9Q-L1?i=269&cc=1837908 , Film # 004010879 , image 270. The entries all have the correct day and month, but wrong year. It is indexed as 1817, but should be 1819 ("mil ochocientos diez y ueve años").0
@davidleelambert Thank you for alerting us to another error. We'll add it to our report for fixing.0
