Subject: Marriage documented in 2 Parishes??
Date: Wed, 1 Apr 1998 23:40:58 EST
Could someone tell me if marriages were recorded in each couples Parish
record in Scotland. For instance:
Robert Crookstone, widower, collier, in this parish and Marion Ferme in the
Parish of Liberton after proclamation were married 5 Aug 1814.
Aug. 5, 1814. Robert Crookstone, laborer, in the Parish of Tranent and Marion
Fairholm, daughter of William Fairholm, coalhewer, Huntershall also residing
there, were married before witnesses on the above date.
I have ordered microfilms from Salt Lake City Genealogy Library. The films
mention that sometimes Fairholm, Ferme, and Farm are often the same name. I
have also viewed the Parish films for both parishes. I have also checked the
Ancestral File, Scottish Record CD, and the IGI. I cannot find the same
children for each couple, infact I can only find one child for Marion Ferme.
Does anyone have any ideas of how I can prove this to be the same couple or
that they are not the same? Would a census help me? Are there any available
at that time?
