With each result, you will find a transcript of details found in the original parish records. The details found in each record will vary depending on the condition of the original source and the date the record was created. Marriage records are a valuable resource for expanding your family tree back centuries. Early marriage records only included the couple’s names and marriage date, but later records included the couple’s parents’ names.
Each transcript will include some combination of the following facts:
Spouse’s birth year
Spouse’s father’s name
