Where Spouses Come From

The majority of times (especially when transportation was limited), marriage partners came from
  • church
  • neighbors
  • others in same social class
  • same ethnic/cultural group
While there are always exceptions, the majority of times husbands and wives shared some of these characteristics. Keep this in mind when trying to locate spouses and marriage records of family members.
