Grab the Correct Date

When using a document that contains several dates make certain you grab the right date for the right event.

A marriage record may contain the date of the license, the date of the marriage, and the date of the recording. Make certain that the date you put as the marriage date is the marriage date and not one of the other dates on the document.

  1. The same caveat goes for birth date vs. date of baptism; death date vs. date of interment vs. date of obituary.
