  • To search using spouse's name

    SEARCHING USING SPOUSE’S FIRST NAME

    You can search just the England & Wales Marriages 1837-2008 record set using the Spouse's last name and the marriage year. This can be found under the A-Z of Record sets and searching for England or Marriages.

    To search using the spouse’s first and/or last name across more record sets, e.g. parish or non-conformist records, before 1837 or a combination of record sets, you will need to select Marriages & Divorces from the All Collections menu. This will take you to the specific search page.

    N.B. If you use the filter from Browse Record collections on the Birth, Marriage, Death & Parish Records page, you just narrow down all the results you may already have and you will not get the specific search page, so you will not get the box for Spouse's name.

    USING FILTERS
    You need to filter by Record set to find the England & Wales 1837-2006 marriages. You can either start typing “England ..”, in the main box and select it when it appears underneath, or type in the filter search box and tick the name when it appears. Either way, the filter will appear UNDER the input box.



    You can add as many filters as you like and each will appear UNDER the box. I knew the bride’s surname from her son’s birth certificate and there was just a chance that they may have married in Shropshire, so I added the relevant parish records sets.

    There were two possibilities in the right sort of area. The MarriageFinder confirmed which was the correct one - and they had wandered off from Shropshire.



    HINT: You can specify a parish by using the optional keywords box at the bottom of the page.

    HINT: To add non-conformist records to your search, browse record sets and type "non-" or "conform" into the filter search box

    • 1939 Register
      by Elaine ..Spain
      The National Registration Act 1939 established a National Register which began on 29th September 1939. The data collected was used to produce up-to-date population statistics and identification cards as well as helping to administer conscription. The following year, when rationing was introduced, the register was used for the issuing of ration books and at a later date, after the war, it helped in the creation of the National Health Service. The Register is an important set of records for genealo...
