Please advise as to how I report an error in the transcription from an original record. The example I have is that the original shows clearly that the deceased was 72 years but the transcription shows only 2 years. Al available facts also fit 72 years.

Where is the transcription? Is it in a GenesReunited record or freeBMD or FamilySearch?

If in a GR record then contact support at:
