This question would never have arisen if I hadn't seen the actual register.
I am working with the Parish Register of St. David’s Church (Creswell, North Carolina). The register was microfilmed by the North Carolina State Archives, and the film is available on FamilySearch (FHL microfilm 260514, item 1.) A few years ago I visited the church where the physical register is kept and photographed the contents before FamilySearch digitized the microfilm. When I was writing a document that references the register, I discovered that the FHL microfilm is incomplete: there is one section totally omitted, there is useful material handwritten inside the front cover that is missing, and the publisher's register title page is missing. While I can use the digitized copy at FamilySearch for most of my references, I want to separately refer to the physical register to inform my readers that there is additional information in it that does not appear in FamilySearch.
My question if how should I refer to the physical register, i.e., what do I use as the title? The register is a preprinted blank book supplied by the denomination that could be used by any local parish. The register contains a title page for the physical register book itself, followed by a preprinted title page that the local parish completes. Attached are two photos of the pertinent pages from the actual register. The first image in the digitized microfilm on FamilySearch is the second page in my file, and thus is the title for the register that I suspect most researchers would use in their references. But I also want to create a reference to the physical register. Do I use the title as found in the first page of my file as the title, or that in the second page, or do I somehow need to include both?
Or, as is very common, am I overthinking this?
