Fearless Females – Bells Will be Ringing (Wedding Bells that is)

March 4thDo you have marriage records for your grandparents or great-grandparents?  Write a post about where they were married and when.  Any family stories about the wedding day?  Post a photo too if you have one.

I have been fortunate in that I have found marriage records for all up to my great-great grandparents on both sides of my family, with the exception of my paternal grandparents.  This I have to say is due to the excellent records kept by Scotland’s People.  Even with the Irish side I have been lucky.  Although I don’t have the actual certificates or registrations for the Irish records, I do have transcripts.  I think this is in part due to the fact that my family comes from Northern Ireland and a lot of the BMD records were either kept at the church level or sent to the records office in Belfast and not Dublin.
