FamilySearch Record Update

For the week of 13 July FamilySearch reports the following Canadian and English indexed records have been added to existing collections where there are no associated digital images. The exception is the first, for Toronto's Mount Pleasant Cemetery, which is a new collection and, strangely, in the original news release is given the title Ascension!

Update from Jane MacNamara
The weirdly named FamilySearch records that I read about in your post this morning have some very serious issues—including large numbers of records from other locations all together. I have let FamilySearch know, and I suspect that they will pull them down temporarily.

I’ve also told them that I’ll mention it to you so you can warn your readers.

In the meantime, they can search up to 1935, and browse images up to 1988 here: https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1627831
