Where should I be careful when analyzing a marriage record? (2023)
Most of genealogy information is found on the marriage record. But we must first find it i.e. know the place of marriage, which sometimes is not easy.
On a marriage, we find in principle people for 3 marriages and even more if a bride and groom or their parents are shown as a widower / widow.
For dates of birth or death indicated in the marriage, you must be careful and ideally look for birth and / or death record.
It is the same with names and places may vary between types of records.
There may be corrections to names or other about previous records (birth, death ) as well as a legitimation of an illegitimate child.
Up from records of 1893, we find information if the newlyweds have signed a deed or not in front of a notary.
As far as the names are not very readable, take care of the signatures or names of the alphabetical list at the end of the year respectively of the 10-years tables. asbl   HOME   myluxroots   SEARCH   our volunteers   our subscriptions asbl   Contact
