I need help from someone who knows the resources in Los Angeles Co., CA.
I cannot order a LA County, CA marriage record until I know the EXACT DATE. I am hoping there are marriage record databases in existence for the date range 1940-1955 that could help with a date.
Also, the names are not real common:
HAMBY, Charles Wesley/Westley (1897 CO - 1982 CA)
RANDOL, Minnie Frances (1889 CO - 1975 CA)
[She is my grandmother who divorced her 1st husband, Hollie Clifton Randol, my grandfather]
Minnie Frances (Woods) RANDOL is listed as "D"ivorced "Housekeeper" in the home of "Charles Westley Hamby" on the 1940 US Federal Census at 656 Silverlake Blvd., Los Angeles, LA Co., CA.
1940 Census - Minnie's married daughter and family live on the same street [Doug & Marian Randol Allen].
Minnie Frances' data has always eluded me and other family members - she fibbed about her age because she was older than her 2nd husband and even her own children (now all deceased)did not know her EXACT birth year or EXACT marriage date to Charlie Hamby.
After Minnie died, Charlie remarried and, of course [haha] I was able to find that record - It's ALWAYS the remotest folks for whom records are most accessible! = A sort of Murphy's Law of Genealogy.
I have ALL other records [censuses, SSDI's CA Death Index, marriage to my grandfather, burial records for all 3, etc.]... but I lack:
Minnie Frances Woods m1)RANDOL m2) Hamby's
(1) Birth Record [multiple attempts in CO]
(2) Divorce RECORD from my grandfather [need date + place]
(3) Marriage Record to Charles W. Hamby [LA 1940-1955]
Can anyone in LA advise/assist me on item #3
