Ask Ancestry Anne: It’s Time for Wedding Bells!

Women’s History Month continues. Today’s prompt:

Do you have marriage records for your grandparents or great-grandparents? Write a post about where they were married and when. Any family stories about the wedding day? Post a photo too if you have one.


I’m pretty sure this is a photo taken about the time of my great grandparents wedding.  Wyatt Paul Gillespie and Laura Cecile Donald were married January 24, 1894 in Lexington, Virginia.

Tall men and short women seem to be a theme in my family. :-)

When I was researching this couple, I learned the value of looking for the marriage record and then looking to see if their names appeared elsewhere in the database.  Well, guess what.  Wyatt’s did.  I talk about in Returned not used: How I Almost Wasn’t

OK, now it’s your turn!  Post a URL to a blog post where you talk about a wedding in your tree or tell us a story in the comments.

Happy Searching!
