Advanced Genealogists Forum
Saturday, September 17
Advanced Genealogists Forum
10:00 am
remote meeting by Zoom
Marriage records and marriage practices have varied in America by location and time period. The most common practice has been for women to take their husband's surname, which often complicates identifying the birth family of the wife. When remarriage occurs, research can become even more complicated.
 
We will discuss a published case study which deals with some  of these common challenges. The focus of the article is to identify Mary's birth family, but we will discuss the issue arising from her two marriages, covered in pages 5 to 10.
