Vital Records & Maiden Name Errors

I have been searching through a lot of Vital Records & have found a constant error in when the Mother's maiden name is given, it is often attached to the Father as their married name. The real kicker is when the column header states that it's the Maiden Name.

The moral of this story: search for parents under the Mother's Maiden Name because not all transcribers are created equal.
