Sometimes I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed. (And yes, I just called myself a tool. Sheesh!)
I found the following marriage listings on the FamilySearch.org website after a fairly simple search. (Wish I’d thought of this sooner or maybe I did but the index wasn’t “live” when I looked last. I can only hope it’s the latter.)
Texas Marriages, 1837-1973 15 May 2010 1,673,447
Ada has been one of my “brick walls” for sometime because I can’t ever get a hold on her correct maiden name. I’ve finally found William and Ada’s marriage! William and Ada are my great grandparents.
Tom and Viola are my grandparents. I never found their marriage date before now.
This is the record that started me looking through the Texas marriages. I had found Roy with Edna in the census records but was never able to locate his death information. I thought if I could find Edna’s maiden name, it might be easier to follow her. (Sadly, I’m no closer to locating either Roy or Edna’s death information but I’m thrilled with this marriage information.)
I actually have this marriage certificate thanks to a wonderful cousin but it was neat to see how the marriage was indexed. Sam and Lula are my great grandparents.
There must be a ton more. I’ll have to carefully go through my database and the FamilySearch website to find them all. (Yet another thing to add to my To Do List.) For now, I think I’ll take myself off to the local Family History Center and order some films. I’ve got Texas marriage certificates to see!
