When you’re looking into your ancestral past, perhaps the first thing you need to locate is you long lost relatives’ marriage records. These papers are often full of fascinating and pertinent information. Be sure to look at the person who performed the service to get an idea of where they may have attended church. You may also run into a number of marriage licenses that are signed with parental consent, as one of the partners was underage. Finally, track down the histories of the marriage witnesses. They could be your family too!
