You’ve heard the story before. Girl meets boy. Boy falls in love with girl. Girl proposes. And soon the couple finds themselves standing in a county clerk’s office asking about marriage licenses. Marriage records are an incredibly valuable resource for genealogists. Marriage records can give information about family members, dates, places, and more. FamilySearch.org has a large collection of records relating to marriage records. In this class, we will discuss the history of marriage records, learn about marriage records from different localities, and then talk about the resources of FamilySearch.org relating to marriage.

Although same-sex couples could have obtained a marriage license from the Morgan County clerk between Dec. 23 and the morning of Jan. 6, none did.  And because of a Supreme Court ruling Jan. 6, it is not likely to happen again until a federal appeals court can rule on whether the Utah law banning same-sex marriage violates the Constitution.

Not many people can lay claim to babysitting a mountain lion for two weeks or keeping a mouse farm in their laundry room to feed injured raptors.  Don Paul expounded on the time he wrestled the six-month-old mountain lion into the bathroom to wash it off.

United States research is interesting.  It can be some of the most challenging research that can be undertaken.  Even up to the present the United States does not have a federal registry for births and marriages.  The social security death index is probably the closest thing we have to a national death index.
