Mar­riage cer­tifi­cate

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - FIRST STEPS -

Fol­low­ing the ar­rival of civil reg­is­tra­tion, mar­riage could be per­formed in a va­ri­ety of ways across Bri­tain and Ire­land, through churches, reg­is­trars’ of­fices, and even ‘ir­reg­u­larly’ in Scotland un­til 1940 (with­out prior banns, or other forms of pub­lic no­tice). Most records will name the spouses, their ages, oc­cu­pa­tions and res­i­dences – although be aware that one or both of them may be tem­po­rary res­i­dences, to ful­fil par­tic­u­lar res­i­den­tial cri­te­ria.
