I have found a record on LDS indicating that William Sanguily and Sarah Dawes were married in San Francisco in 1872. Any one able to advise where I can look to confirm this?

What source are you referring to when you say "on LDS"? Was this the Western States Marriages database? If so, it usually says what the source record was.

When I perform a search on familysearch.org I can see a record

William Murdock Sanguily
Wife
Sarah Agnes Dawes
Events
Marriage
8 JUL 1872
San Francisco, California, USA

Is there any way I can verify this as it says it was added by family search. Do you think there would be a microfiche record somewhere?

I would first try calling the San Francisco Historical Society and asking what records they have and where else they would recommend calling (e.g., Native Sons - or Native Daughters - of the Golden West). They should be able to tell you what repositories exist and how to get access. You might also want to try the same with surrounding counties if that doesn't work, in case "San Francisco" actually means "San Francisco area." You also might want to ask about the best way to search local newspapers from that time, to see whether there might have been a published announcement.

Thank you for the information. I will have to get some email addresses as I do not live in the US. I do appreciate your time
