An Upper Corner that is Difficult to Read

This is part of the marriage record that is transcribed in the next issue of Casefile Clues, which is being proofed as this post is typed.

It is an excellent example of an item that was easier to transcribe when I knew what it was already from other records.

It was only located in the marriage register via a manual search--it was not in the index in the front of the volume maintained by the clerk. It can often be necessary to search even indexed materials page by page.

Stay tuned--we'll discuss this item in 3-37 of Casefile Clues.
