Similar Records in Different Family History Library Digital Collections

Short warning when using "Historical Records Collections" of digital materials at FamilySearch.

Sometimes similar records may appear in different "collections" as shown in this example which circles four different sets of images from New Hampshire materials that include probate files from various New Hampshire counties.

Of course all of us should use the card catalog at FamilySearch, but I'm suspecting I'm not the only one who occasionally does not do that ;-)
