Known Issues[edit | edit source]

Question 1[edit | edit source]

Question 1: I get a message “Image not available”, or the films listed in the Catalog are not online as indicated by the red redirect “Spain, Diocese of Santander, Catholic Church Records are available online, click here”. How can I view the records?
Answer 1: Whenever possible, FamilySearch makes images available for all users. However, ultimate rights to view images are granted by the record custodians. Spain Data Privacy rules prohibit viewing the following records: All birth images must be 100 years or older; all marriage images must be 75 years or older, and all death images must be 25 years or older. If any record on a digital folder contains birth records from the last 100 years, for example, the entire digital folder is restricted. The Historical Records collections will be updated each year to show new unrestricted records. FamilySearch respects and strives to adhere to all privacy laws respective to preserving and providing access to genealogical records in its collections.

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:
