I’m dissapointed.

Missing films in the beta version listed in previous version.

The other version had the following listed for "Aguadilla, Puerto Rico":
1. FHL INTL Film 2237889 Items 9 - 10 Indice de matrimonios, 1780-1859 -- Matrimonios (de información rescatada), (Mar.) 1780-1816 (Jun.)
2. FHL INTL Film 2237875 Item 1 Matrimonios (de información rescatada), 1816-1817 (Jun.)

They are not listed in the Beta version. Is that because the database is still being updated?

Thanks!

  • Hi Chelsea, we have done a thorough investigation and can only find evidence of those films on the Family History Library Catalog. They are not part of the records that were uploaded on Record Search (pilot) or onto Beta which were gleaned from earlier extracted records.

    It sounds like you are familiar with the Family History Library catalog but if you need further assistance to learn how to order films, please post and I will send you a WIKI article that explains how to order films, and also how to locate Family History Centers near you where the films can be viewed.

    Our eventual goal is to convert all of the library films to a digital format so that they can be viewed as part of our Historical Records collections but there are many years of work ahead of us. The vault contains over 2.4 million microfilms so it is a big goal.

    Best of luck in your continued research.
    • I searched both the Old FHLCatalog & the Beta version for film number 2237889 - the old version has "Items 9 - 10 Registros parroquiales, 1780-1860 Iglesia Católica. San Carlos Barromeo (Aguadilla, Puerto Rico)"! The Beta version does not - Items 9-10 are missing from the Beta FHLCatalog. It does not seem logical that they would miss the last 2 items of a film when changing to the new catalog.

  • When I search on Beta FHL Catalog for film number 2237889, I get three results
    http://beta.familysearch.org/s/search...=

    If I click on each of the three links and look at the film notes for each I see (among other films)
    -Iglesia Católica. La Inmaculada Concepción (Vieques, Puerto Rico)
    Bautismos de pardos, 1844-1860 (jun.) -- Bautismos de blancos, 1844-1860 (ago.) FHL INTL Film 2237889 Items 3 - 4
    Matrimonios, 1844-1858 (nov.) FHL INTL Film 2237889 Items 5 - 6
    Defuncioes de blancos, (ago.) 1844-1860 (jul). (filmado dos veces en ítem 7 y 8) FHL INTL Film 2237889 Items 7 - 8

    -Iglesia Católica. San Pedro Apóstol (Toa Baja, Puerto Rico)
    Ermita Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria de Plantaje: Bautismos 1792-1859 (mayo) -- Matrimonios, 1781-1782, 1784, 1787 (muy poquitas partidas) FHL INTL Film 2237889 Items 1 - 2

    -Iglesia Católica. San Carlos Barromeo (Aguadilla, Puerto Rico)
    Indice de matrimonios, 1780-1859 -- Matrimonios (de información rescatada), (mar.) 1780-1816 (jun.) FHL INTL Film 2237889 Items 9 - 10

    Although the display of the search results for film number 2237889 is different on current FHL Catalog, in that you do see the item numbers on the search results, the film notes appears to be the same.
