    What era are we talking about? Unlikely and expensive before WW2.

    A subsequent marriage cert SHOULD say "previous marriage dissolved" but people often lied about being divorced as it was such a social disgrace.

      Sheila, there are some on The National Archives website and I think some on findmypast. Hopefully someone can remember the code for the National Archives database!

        If you are talking abou the 1950's I think you will need to contact

              Thank you for that it is a bit difficult from Queensland but I'll have to try, if I can't answer my puzzle
              OC I think it would be in the 1940/1950 1960 at most

                How is knowing they divorced going to help though??

                Why don't you just write to them? (the son-in-law, I mean)

                  I have this horrible, sickening, feeling, that someone has blocked me!!!

                  Because otherwise, I don't know how Merry knows

                  a) you were talking about the 1950s

                  and

                  b) your brother in lawe is somehow involved.

                      OC, I don't think anybody can block you from reading their posts - I think it only works the other way round; you can put somebody onto your block ("ignore") list and then you will not see that person's posts. But I'm sure Merry is just remembering something from another of Sheila's threads?

                        I have my parents-in-law's marriage cert 1949 and it states father-in-law

                        "[name withheld by me] Evans, 27, formerly the husband of [namewitheld by me] Evans formerly [name withheld] spinster, from whom he obtained a divorce. "

                        doesn't give information about previous marriage date or date of divorce and I've been unable to trace this first wife - not a relative, but I am just plain nosey!!

                        However, this first marriage was a BIG secret. I only found out after both my parents-in-law died, and m-i-l only told my husband as she thought it would be a big shock if he found the divorce decree nisi papers when we cleared the house after their deaths. No one ever mentioned his first wife, and I was told that my parents-in-law married in the Methodist church because m-i-l didn't get on with the Anglican vicar!

                          having had a part in the other thread too - neither party appears to have remarried - i know I have looked at every blessed quarter!

                          I think you need to stop and really take stock of the info you have- see where you are, what it will be helpful to know now, and what will add something to your research.

                          (personally I think you are up a gum tree and gone wrong anyway)
