My grandfather, Albert Talch, (he changed his last name spelling from Talg, to Talch when he got his US citizenship) lived in Las Palmas for a number of years, but I am not exactly sure how long. I have a few of my mother's old photos from him dated between 1964-1968, and a Spanish newspaper clipping which appears to be from 1963. I would like to find some things like city directories (for residence info) and possibly a local area census record, or something similar. I have had no luck finding records of any kind for the Canary Islands. His time there is a complete blank that I would like to f ..read more

About trusting some search results and very old church records not being viewable today

Should I blindly trust some record information produced by the ancestor search when the target ancestor record seems to be included in a film that is not viewable nor indexed according to the catalog format? Some example: Ancestor search https://www.familysearch.org/ark%3A/61903/1%3A1%3A6JDG-MWMN The search produces some relevant? direct data, nothing about mentions from some other specifics records. There are not images available but there is a specific reference to a cataloque: "EspaƱa, registros parroquiales y diocesanos, 1307-1985", , FamilySearch (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1 ..read more

Broken 'Next Page' on Searching Cemeteries
FamilySearch Community

I've really enjoyed finding family burials using https://www.familysearch.org/en/cemeteries/sites However, I have trouble when I use the "Filter By" feature to show "My Relatives". The search results are a problem when I get more than one page of search results, I can only find information on the first page! When I select the icon to go to the next page, the user interface presents the same first page again, but labelled as page 2. The same happens for all additional pages. It seems to be presenting a new page of info because of the page number, but it only displays the info on the first page ..read more
