Known Issues[edit | edit source]

Question 1[edit | edit source]

Question 1: Some records are missing. Where can the records be viewed?
Answer 1: See answers below for information about known missing records and respective film numbers, if available, or alternate online location:

  • A recent rework of the collection incorporated hamlet names into the City or Town level. The records are found by using the Catalog’s Keyword search by the name of the hamlet. Review the search results and annotate the larger city name needed to browse. For example: the records for the hamlet of Canach will now be found under Lenningen.
  • Rosport > Décès 1815-1823 Naissances 1797-1888 is missing the records for the village of Osweiler. Order Film 1921599 to view the records for Osweiler births, deaths and marriages 1797-1823.

Question 2[edit | edit source]

Question 2: The Event Type and Year Range (waypoint) title does not properly reflect the actual digital record content. How can I determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection?
Answer 2: The list of known waypoint discrepancies describes the event type or year range existing in the collection:

  • Diekirch > Naissances, mariages, décès 1893-1902 should be relocated as Echternach > Tables décennales 1893 -1903.
  • Diekirch > Décès 1903-1912 year span should be 1903-1923.
  • Ell > Mariages 1796-1823 includes death and baptism records.
  • Esch-sur-Alzette > Naissances 1807 year span should be 1807-1874.
  • Esch-sur-Alzette > Naissances 1802-1892 year span should be 1797-1807.
  • Esch-sur-Alzette > Naissances 1874 Mariages 1797-1816 year span should be 1874-1890.
  • Perlé > Naissances, mariages, décès 1779-1892 includes Tables décennales 1802-1823, starting with Image 6-20 of 223.
  • Putscheid > Naissances 1779-1831 begins with records from 1798 which would indicate that the year span is incorrect. However, Image 1 contains a note indicating that the years are out of order.
  • Remich > Naissances, mariages, décès 1881-1894 should be relocated as Remich > Naissances 1881, 1891-1894, Mariages 1891-1894, Décès 1891-1894.
  • Rosport > Naissances, mariages, décès 1800-1815 year span should be 1796-1823.
  • Troisvierges > Naissances 1805-1890 Mariages 1779-1805 year span should be Naissances 1805-1890 Mariages 1779-1813.
  • Tuntange > Décès 1895-1912 should be relocated as Strassen > Deces 1895-1923
