What would you do to find this lost couple?

What would you do to find this lost couple?

Surnames: maley, Omaley, Peck
I am trying to find a marriage license and birth certificates on my two g-g-grandparents.

Michael Maley b: 1858 NY - Says both parents from Italy
Louise "Lucy" Peck b: 1865 OH - Says father is from
Emgland and mother from France.

I have the following proven info on them but have not located birth certificates or a marriage license -

1884 (Unknown Location) - Mike and Louise Married

1892 Corning City, Steuben NY. Also with them is a Mary Peck b: 1844 France and listed as alien and a William Peck
b: 1876 in US

1900 Corning City, Steuben NY

1902 Muskegon MI

1904-1906: 125 Florence St, Muskegon MI - Also listed in the city directory at their address is a Charles Maley.


1910: 163 Apple St, Muskegon MI

1920: 619 Ionia St, Grand Rapids MI. Michael has died by this time. Louise remarried. Also living with her is an Anna OMalley b: 1843 NY and Phillip OMalley b: 1897 OH


So it looks like I have to start tracking down hard copies but I may have to contact every county in NY and OH? Where would you start? Any insight is appreciated on who is who and where I should start.

I'm very disappointed to see this post on the board. I have given you many suggestions, on the boards and by private message to further your search, what don't you understand?

I suggest to any other volunteer willing to help this poster to steer clear, or at the very least check their posting history before wasting a minute of time.

This post clearly has upset you. I had replied to your private message AFTER this post and understand everything perfectly and appreciate the direction.

I have contacted St Mary's RC (now under another name), my local FHC and ordered the micro-film. I had previously posted on surname and location boards asking if anyone had any further information.

How mind-boggling ill-mannered! Nobody forces anyone to offer any advice, it is a purely voluntary so if you do not want to do it the answer is easy - do not do it. But what on earth makes you think that a self-opinionated utterance like that would inspire anyone to take your advice on anything?
