On looking for my David BIRCHENOUGH of Macclesfield on the electoral roll on
FMP I found a lot of pages for 1880, most of them just repeats,
I am not sure if the repeats are an error but I would have thought so and
not sure how to report it as the system doesn't seem to fit the error I am
trying to report.
Something is definitely odd - I see a screen full of
BIRCHENOUGH David 1880 Macclesfield Cheshire
And the first few I looked at, duplicate the image AND the film number. The
classic cause of repeats that I've seen previously is two different films
(i.e. different film numbers) of the same original source. But that's not
the case here as the film numbers are the same.
I've spotted 4 film numbers so far:
Not sure how many repeats there are of each. But the absurdity is that none
of those films should cover stuff from 1880 for Macclesfield. The
FamilySearch Catalogue gives these entries for those film numbers:
West division, 1885 Divisions of Altrincham, Crewe, Eddisbury, Hyde and
Knutsford, 1885-1886 FHL BRITISH Film 1544544
Divisions of Macclesfield, Northwich and Wirral, 1885-1886 Divisions of
Altrincham, Crewe and Eddisbury (District S, p. 15), 1887 FHL BRITISH
Divisions of Eddisbury (Division S, p. 15), Hyde, Knutsford, Macclesfield,
Northwich and Wirral, 1887 Division of Altrincham (to District L, p. 30),
1888 FHL BRITISH Film 1544546
Divisions of Altrincham (from District L, p. 30), Crewe, Eddisbury, Hyde,
Knutsford, Macclesfield and Northwich (to District J, p. 15), 1888 FHL
BRITISH Film 1544547
Macclesfield is referred to, but not 1880!
I suggest you try and use the normal "Contact Us" form, with a Customer
Support query and tell them about the repeats and the odd film numbers that
are contradicted by the catalogue.
