Marriage records not baptism records.
I was researching in the FamilySearch catalog on FHL film #102061084 images #364-377 and found they are marriage records. They have been indexed as baptism records. Is there a way to index them again as marriage records and add the missing spouses.
Does indexing or historical records make the change? Is this even a possibility at this time and how do we get this information to those that can make the change?
Thank you for all these wonderful records.
Thank you for the additional clarifications. Unfortunately the system is going through some major overhauls and the group charged with "fixing" specific problems is not longer actively fixing them. We hope to have a way to fix wide-spread errors or collection titles and other issues in the future, but for now we can't. Some of the criteria used to determine whether to transfer the issue to the engineering team is (1) how widespread the problem is; (2) does it make the collection impossible to use; and (3) does it prevent users from finding their ancestors in the indexed records. Because this appears not to reach those egregious levels we cannot flag these specific records. But we thank you for pointing them out and hope you will be patient as we go through this overhaul process.0

Because the film has all kinds of records it appears that the one you discovered might in fact be appropriately classified according to the descriptions above. We don't read old German so youwill have to be the one to decide that.0
You are correct that that is the DGS #. I can read old German and I looked at the images #364-377. They are marriage records that have been indexed as baptism records. Is there anyone who can flag these to be indexed again as marriage records. That is my question. Thank you for your help with this issue.0

Thank you so much for your post, as it not only answers this particular query, but many of the same nature that are being raised every week in Community.
I do wish there was a more prominent place your comments could be displayed, so all users could be made clearly aware of the current circumstances, rather having to raise multiple "Questions" for which the response will be (disappointingly for them) the same.0
