Do they have Mormon churches in Shanghai? If you have access to a Family
History Center, there is a microfilm with Marriages from Graaff-Reinet. You
would have to order the film and then wait for it to arrive. Mine usually
take about 4-5 weeks to get here, but I live in the U.S. And of course,
there is no guarantee that the marriage you are looking for will be on the
film. Here is the info:
