Thank you for your input, infosending; it is appreciated.
The 5 digit sequence refers to my particular individual; there are additionally, at least, 6 digit state file numbers and might be used in conjunction with a county registrar number.
I'm searching a female whose final marriage surname is positively established.
She was previously married at least once; so in two known marriages and her maiden name she has a minimum of three surnames.
There are two identical marriage certificates for her last huband, but her surname is different. I am wondering if the asterisk indicates a previous marriage(s) or her maiden name.
