A minister performing a church marriage was required to record the details in the Church Marriage Register. The detail was then transferred to a loose leaf form and forwarded to the Registry or District Office. On some occasions prior to 1898 details of age, place of birth of the bride and groom as well as parent’s names was not recorded or else not forwarded to the Registry. Consider the following solutions:
1. Search the index and apply for a transcription for a birth of their child. The parent’s were required to register the birth of children. The name, age, and birthplace of the parent’s would be recorded on the birth transcription.
2. Check the witnesses who may have been family.
3. Check to see if there a registration for a sibling that may provide more detail.
4. Check if the Church has a complete record in the Church Register:
