Correct an incorrect index
Hi! I'm not sure if I'm posting in the correct place, but I'd appreciate your guidance. I have come across a family record, which is indexed as a marriage but is actually an affidavit, where the spouse is declaring she was married to the deceased. In the index, the affidavit date is assumed to be the marriage date, when actually it is 6 years after the death of the groom. I think the problem arose because it is not in English. I can change a few of the incorrect details, such as the place (supposedly of the marriage but actually where the affidavit was signed) but not the categorisation of the record and hence the main details. Is it possible to correct this? Thanks so much! Nicky
