Possible catalogue error
FYI - I was directed here by FamilySearch Support - this was the best of the options for a Community in which to post this, so I hope I've chosen correctly.
I have a question about a catalogue record. It claims to be Parish Register Transcripts, but from what I can see, the image I look at CLEARLY has original signatures on it, indicating that it's the parish register entry.
Parish register transcripts, 1563-1812
Authors: Church of England. St. Bartholomew's Church (Heigham, Norfolk) (Main Author)
Format: Manuscript/Manuscript on Film
Publication: [Place of publication not identified : s.n., 19--]
Physical: on 1 microfilm reel ; 35 mm.
Film: 993968, Item 2
Marriage of John Sidney and Mary Wright at Heigham, Norfolk on 07 Feb 1796

Below is a snip of the marriage in question, where it's obvious Robert Parr the rector, John Sidney, and Isaac Tillyard signed the register, while Mary and Richard Wright made their mark, as the signatures all vary quite widely. How can this be a transcript? I've seen enough Bishop/Archdeacon's transcripts to know the difference:
In order for me to cite this record correctly, I am hoping someone can clarify the cataloguing on this and let me know if this is indeed an image of the original register and not a transcript.

You can report an error in the catalog by sending an email to [email protected] with the details, including the URL to the film/DGS.
Unfortunately, the catalog has been locked for the better part of 2 years, pending an update.
Hope this helps.1
Thanks for the information - I really appreciate your help. Interesting to know the catalogue has been locked!1
