HOLY MATRIMONY! Where to find clues to wedded bliss by Mary Penner

Even when all of the signs seem to indicate that a certain great-great-aunt was married, it can still be tough trying to determine when, where, with whom and how many times she tied the knot. It's even tougher when marriage records are AWOL from a county courthouse or when you just don't know where to look.

 It turns out there are great sources at your library.  AncestryLibrary for one, is the database that holds clues to past trips down the aisle. Here are five types of records found at your library through

-- Census Records
-- Draft Records
-- Death Records
-- Newspapers
-- City Directories
