Description and Highlights

Marriage documents are among the best sources available for family history research. Marriage affects land and property rights for both the man and the woman. There is more than one way to locate marriage data. It is important to remember there are at least 16 official records created at the time a marriage occurs. You have more than one chance to find it. Don't miss this opportunity to learn how to accurately prove and document your family history starting with the most valuable records available, the marrige documents. The marriage record is one of the "Basic Sources*" or record types vital to your research success.

Learn how to locate marriage records even if they are not where you expect them to be. Learning to use today's technology will give you the boost you need for successfully researching, proving, and sharing your family history.  

We teach tried and tested skills along with new strategies for using the tools available today.

This series of classes will be availble over a 5 week course. We will meet Monday mornings for 5 weeks. Register for the whole series and save.
