Here is a question. I have not been able to figure out the parents names of my gr gr grandpa. I actually have the marriage certificate from 1864 from Iowa, that my Grandma passed down.
It dawned on me he probably would have had to put down his parents names on the application for marriage. Do you know how I can access the application? I'm afraid if I ordered a marriage record, I would get what I already have. It is a marriage certificate about a quarter size of an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. Only the bride, groom, place, and witnesses are on it.
Your suggestion will be greatly appreciated. This has been one of my brick walls.
