But if Boston is the first place that they find a record that is OK as
it should say that you were married in New Bedford, which would tell
them where to look next, you are giving them another starting point.
Mine is not quite as bad, birth registered in Hartford, CT listing
Southwick, MA as where my parants lived. Marriage recorded in Bristol,
CT (where I got married) and it indicates that I was living in
Burlington. At least the records show the other places that people would
need to know. At least at this point no one will find a death record for me.
