American Ancestors

Last week i was watching a DVD "Who do you think you are ? USA. It followed the journeys of six well know US personalities as they explored their family trees. All were different but they had one thing in common. That was to expect the unexpected. We are all faced with brick walls at some point and this had happened to me. After watching the DVD i was reminded to think outside the square. I had been looking for a marriage record for months, thinking that it had taken place in England. I found the record on Ancestry.Com in Delaware, USA. It was the record i had been searching for months but it had a few unexpected details. The female gave her age as being eight years younger than she really was. The record also stated that she was single. Knowing that i had found her in the 1900 USA ,nine years earlier with a husband and two children it was a surprise but a welcomed record.
