I am wondering if marriage records have the parents of the groom and bride on them ? I found a marriage record of a possible cousin of mine,. The marriage was on 13 Oct 1934 in Twin Falls.

Well, perhaps I am wrong. The Twin Falls Daily News for 14 Oct 1934 says, "Californians Wed at Local Parsonage. Miss Maryee Calvert, San Francisco, and Ralph Henry Ely, also of that city, were united in marriage at high noon yesterday at the Methodist Episcopal parsonage, Dr. William Basil Young officiating."

That Maryee Calvert is listed as a Californian is odd/surprising, since I found her on city directories for Pocatello in 1927. 1929, 1930 and 1934.

That is odd - she was apparently a teacher in Pocatello and in Salt Lake City before that. In the 1919 Salt Lake City directory, she is shown as a student boarding at 35 G St. Also at that address was a Pertilla G. Calvert shown with no occupation but as a resident - which implies head of household. Does that name ring any bells? John
