They Got Married ... Where?
I love surprising databases. A few weeks ago, I accessed some Consular death records (Americans who died abroad) on Ancestry. Then a friend told me about Mt. Elliott Cemetery Association site (here) and this week it is consular marriage records. I'm trying to pull all the international stuff I can before I drop the membership back to US Deluxe. At any rate yesterday's discovery was US Consular Reports of Marriages, 1910-1949. I found two different marriages, one which I will share with you - US Consul in Costa Rica. I actually knew this marriage had taken place in Costa Rica, but proof is always nice!
