Ancestor Marriage Record Finder: Finding a Marriage Record When You’ve Hit a Brick Wall
By Lorine McGinnis Schulze
Most genealogists search the obvious marriage records such as Church records and Vital Stats (Marriage Registrations or Certificates). These records are fairly well known but before Civil Registration began, in whatever country your ancestor was from, you will have to look for other records for a marriage date.
If we don’t find our ancestor in one of those common marriage records, we’re often stuck! Where to search next? The Ancestor Marriage Record Finder can help direct you to alternate sources for marriage records. All we need to do is think outside the box.
Ask yourself what happens when a couple marries? What events take place around a marriage? What kind of Marriage record paper trail is created at the time of marriage of an individual? The answers to these questions will lead you to other sources of marriage records and hopefully end that brick-wall.
