Abstract: In this paper we present methods of detection of errors in catalogues of visual double stars. We also present results of their application to three principal catalogues of visual double and multiple stars, WDS, CCDM and TDSC. In particular we consider cases when positional information on components of a pair is contradictory, and when a double star or its component is included in a catalogue twice, under different names.
