Classification: Query
Surnames: SMITH, BURNS, LaFORREST
Hi Posting the request for Marie Minnie SMITH and including her Married Surname LaFORREST -might be helpful - Minnie may havekept in touch with people under her married surname.
Note: In our family as well others
it seems that after some women marry - younger family members do not know/remember the persons surname previus to marriage.

Do you have the Marriage Regisration
This is one of the more accurate documents -since the Bride and Groom provide the information.
Depending on the Requirements of the time and place -
Names of Bride and Groom - Age -Place of Birth -Occupation-Residence. Marital Status. Names of both sets of Parents including maiden name of the Mother. Place of birth of Parents -[some have occupaton of father ]
Religion of families -
Date of Marriage - Place of Marriage - including name of church. Name of Clergy. Religious service
Names and addresses of Witnesses
Most families will not have a copy of the registration - unless they have requested same.

We may find the Marriage Licence in family posessions
This is a basic extract of Information - good as proof of the event - without giving to much personal information - and a nice keepsake.

You have the Death Certificate? Registration?
The Registration of death - Information comes from the Informant - many times a family member / husband etc.
Depending on their knowledge - interest and requirements of the time.
May show:
Name and Address - Date and Place of Birth -
Sex.Race.Citizenship.
Marital Status - Name of Spouse
Occupation. Industry. Time at Occupation. Last Worked
Names of Parents - Including Maiden name of the Mother
Place of Birth of the Parents.
Date of Death. Place of Death. *May show Cause of Death -
Burial or Cremation.
Name and Address of Funeral Home, Cemetery. Physician.
