Question: How/where to report problems with recent indexes
I'm raising this topic here, because in the Hungarian Group I didn't receive answer.
Recently, I have found serious gaps and incorrect indexing while browsing the registers and attaching sources.
- Only one side (left) of the birth register picture in a municipality is indexed. The entries on the other (right) side have not been indexed.
- All children born are indexed as male, regardless of whether they are actually a girl, and this fact is indicated in the birth register.
- Groom's surname added to bride's surname in all new marriage indexes.
- Husband's surname added to spouse's surname in all new death record indexes. (Edited)
My question is: where can such problems be reported so that someone can deal with them?
I ask because I have previously reported problems with full church books, but no one has corrected them since.
Thank you in advance for your replies!
Can you provide a link to a specific page where this error occurs?0
I don't have an example at hand of László's first point, but the rest are ubiquitous.
My great-grandmother appearing in indexes as "male":
Every bride made consanguinous with the groom:
Every wife made consanguinous with her husband at death:
The first issue: (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:939V-KN1X-3?cc=1743180&cat=104995)
It is not so general, like the others. It maybe a single page issue, but where and how I can report it to be fixed?
The old issue (I reported years ago, when it was possible to do it on the FS website itself):
In the catalog (https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/1436098?availability=Family%20History%20Library) the first item of film 4528872, Slovakian State Archive inventory number 939. (Inv. č. 939 Krsty 1692-1716 -- Manželstvá 1684-1716 -- Úmrtia 1684-1711) It contains registers from Felsődiós, Pozsony, Hungary (nowadays Horné Orešany, Trnava, Slovakia).
The problem is, that all birth indexes are assigned to village Bzince pod Javorinou, Nové Mesto nad Váhom, Slovakia instead of Horné Orešany.0
I checked that the missing recto is not just an image-to-index problem: none of the entries on the right-hand side show up in any searches of that film.
The misplacement of events in Felsődiós in Pozsony county into Felsőbotfalu all the way up in Nyitra is a decade-old error (at least), complete with index-based floating twiglets littering the tree (such as https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/details/L8NV-VX9). Apparently, the answer to "who can fix this?" is either "nobody" or "we haven't a clue".0
