Character error 

Paul Garrett continues to refers to Jim Lloyd as his great grandfather. Paul Garrett would have been the grandson of Jim Lloyd not the great grandson.

Continuity 

About twenty minutes from the beginning, we see a chart of Paul Garrett's family tree when he shows it to Lew Vernor. The genealogy is copied intact from the same scene in the novel, and so it conflicts with some of the revised and streamlined events in the miniseries. Some examples: the chart shows Jim Lloyd dying in 1924, while in the miniseries he was still alive in 1933. The miniseries has Lloyd's daughter Nancy (mentioned but never seen) married to Beeley Garrett, but the chart shows her married to Paul Mercy. And the book's family tree contained an error which was copied to what is seen here; it lists Prudence Wolf and Pale Star Zendt as mother and daughter but gives them the highly unlikely birth years of 1866 and 1874 respectively.

When Paul Garrett shows Verner his family tree, they used the one printed in the book. However, the mini-series skipped a generation. Paul is Jim and Charlotte's grandson in the mini-series, but the tree shows him as their great grandson which is how it is in the book.
