You would have to ask an Transcription Agent to help you.  Of course there would be a fee.  With such an uncommon occurring surname I doubt it is wrong.  I always purchase a certificate or two along the way to validate my research anyway.

Cheers

No I meant the placement of the words in the index. I have seen information from the certificates, put in the wrong fields. The word is right, but its in the wrong spot. If it was my tree, I would have bought some certificates already. I dont get the transcription service anyway. If your transcribing something, save some time and take a photo and send that to me instead. This paying for each word on a certificate, is silly. ???

Not everyone can afford to pay for a certified certificate.

Transcription Agents can only transcribe from the registers not photograph them. Fee around $20 and less if you request just a 'block' of information.

 I have used their services frequently in NSW and have always found them extremely helpful.  Thankfully most of my ancestors were in Victoria with a sprinkling in WA so certs readily available.  My lot were pretty boring anyway - no skeletons in the cupboard ;) :P

A lot of mine were from Victoria. They have a good system in place. You buy it and download it.  ;D ;D Hubby is the one with the NSW and South Australia.  :-X

I have the CD's of BDM for SA along with the Biographical Index for South Australians.  Lots of passenger lists have recently been digitised on SA Records. If you ever need help just ask.  Of course you may have all you need :)  Agree Victoria's certs easy to access.  Queensland comes a good second though.

Looks certain that Herbert Russell Midlane COOMBE is the same man as Russell MIDLANE.

Transcript of the marriage of Russell MIDLANE and Margaret MOORE
Reg No: 3106
Date Married 9 JAN 1917
Place Married ST MARY'S CHURCH, WEST WYALONG, BLAND SHIRE
Religion ROMAN CATHOLIC
Groom Name: Russell MIDLANE
Conjugal Status Widower
Birthplace York, England
Occupation: Selector
Age 77
Usual Residence BENA
Father : John Henry MIDLANE
Mother: Frances Agnes COOMBE
Occupation - Father: Clergyman
Bride
Name: Margaret MOORE
Conjugal Status: SPINSTER
Birthplace CARLOW, IRELAND
Occupation POST MISTRESS
Age 67
Usual Residence BENA
Father: Denis MOORE
Mother: Ellen POWER
Occupation - Father BAKER
Witnesses Austin H. O'CONNOR, Jane DUNNE
Minister EDWARD JOSEPH LAIDE; REGISTERED 19 FEB 1917

He has transposed the surnames of his parents as his father was John Henry COOMBE and his mother Frances Agnes MIDLANE.  His father's occupation is correct.  He was born in Wilton, Wiltshire but had moved to Yorkshire by 1861 (I cannot find the family in 1841).

He had a younger brother Herbert b 1853 - possibly why he used the forename Herbert  ??? in his early adult life.

I'm still wondering why they were married so late.  Bridget didn't die until the end of 1917.

Is there a shipping record for him?

I now see Russell with his father and siblings in 1841, mistranscribed as COOMBS
1841
Chantry House, Mere, Wiltshire
Jno Coombs   30 - Independent. Not born in County (all children born in county)
Marea Coombs   4
George Coombs   3
Russel Coombs   2
and 2 servants

Mere is where the memorial windows are for the MIDLANE family.
