On Ancestry.com I found someone who seems to be a relative who has similar family: https://www.ancestry.ca/dna/tests/3B0F211F-8181-4C65-8034-41EB5B41BE28/match/C66199CD-ABF6-4921-BCD5-80BD0C275B45?filterBy=ALL&sortBy=RELATIONSHIP&page=1
They list a child of John Connacher and Anges Nelson: Agnes Margaret Conacher. Family Search seems to have a matching record, KZ1M-QQQ, but they say the name is “Agnes Margaret Agnes Connacher” which seems odd. They do link to a source though. I should request the original to verify that.
UPDATE: familysearch.org support said it’s not currently possible to verify indexed data like this or update it. Once they enable this functionality, I should check into this again

Found Missing Info
On that same page, I found a form for contacting familysearch.org. I asked them if there is a way to confirm if this information is correct. My case number was 03717688, at https://familysearch.org/ask/mycases#/5003A00000kugQtQAI They replied: ---------------- Dear Colin Michael Lucien Jonathan Nelson, Your Case # 03717688 Thank you for contacting FamilySearch in regards to errors in records. Errors in the indexed records can come from incorrect indexing or from errors made by the creator of the original record.Unfortunately, it is not currently possible to correct a mis-indexed FamilySearch historical record.FamilySearch is working on a program whereby the patron will have the ability to make these corrections directly on FamilySearch. We suggest you attach the record to the correct person in Family Tree and add a note in the reason statement, which is viewable by all other users, indicating which data is incorrect.We also suggest you keep a personal list of all the records you find that need to be corrected.When corrections become possible, the list will be ready for you to make the changes required. We apologize for this inconvenience. Sincerely, FamilySearch -------------- So I'll need to do this again later.
