Love and marriage is the stuff of romance novels and blockbuster movies time and time again. What about our ancestors? The fact that two people came together, formed a union and raised a family is how we came to be in existence today. For many, this is the foundation of researching ancestors and can prove to be fascinating stories in their lives. Marriage records are a fundamental aspect of genealogical research.

Marriage records are one place to find clues to questions about how our ancestors came together, generation after generation, to create the family we know today.
