I have encountered a nasty problem on FS as I was sourcing my Great Grandpa. The results of the search in the 1900 U.S. Census are incorrect. They have combined two families into one. I was surprised at the response from FS:
Dear Rory Bowers,
We understand you would like changes made in the index.
Errors in the indexed records can come from incorrect indexing or errors made by the creator of the original record.
Unfortunately, it is not currently possible to correct a misindexed FamilySearch historical record at this point. Because FamilySearch is a free service, with limited resources, we have to use those resources very carefully. We do our best to make sure that those resources are being used on projects that will affect the most patrons. FamilySearch is working on a program whereby the Patron will have the ability to request corrections directly on FamilySearch
We suggest, until then, you attach the record to the correct person in your Family Tree and add a note regarding the error you have found in the reason statement, which is viewable by all users, indicating which data is incorrect. When the program is in place to allow changes, you will then be able to make the changes.
We appreciate your patience on this issue and wish you success as you seek your ancestors.
Here is the record:
"United States Census, 1900," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M3XH-8ZV
: accessed 12 May 2017), Robert L Hamilton in household of Leram Muray, Hartford Township Hartford town, Sebastian, Arkansas, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) 0115, sheet 6A, family 104, NARA microfilm publication T623 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1972.); FHL microfilm 1,240,077.
He is not actually on this Sheet. He is on the Next Sheet.
