Female's Name at the Time

Records on female relatives in most areas of the United States will use the name they had at the time the record was created. If you can't find a female relative in a place and time where you expect to, is it possible they had a marriage you are not aware of?

  1. Alternatively, the marriage you are aware of might be a second marriage and the previous name is not the birth name but the name of the first husband.
