Is there a mechanism for alerting JewishGen to errors one finds in
the database? I believe I've found such an error but don't know
how to proceed.
Specifically, I found this death record:
Hungary death: Lipot Wiesenberger, age 53, no parents listed,
died 9 January 1881 at Budapest. Record #323-12. Born Kio (sic),
palinka vendor; wife RIESZ Terez. LDS
642983, Vol. 52.
This man could not have died in 1881 because he fathered
children born in 1882, 1884, 1887, and 1889. Moreover, the LDS
Film # would seem to suggest he died in 1891, not 1881.
I suspect this is simply a case of a transcription error— the
death year should read 1891, not 1881. But how does one go about
correcting such errors?
