Frankly, I'm getting depressed trying to find this marriage record.
Since I have never been to MA it is all Greek to me.
I asked the state for a search and they said no record found. How can there be no record for a name like Neil Thompson???
I asked a professional to do the search, but he said he could do little more than what the state already did.
A person on a RW list siad to Contact Boston City. I did that, but they had no record of his marriage.
I'm 99.999999999999% confident he was married in MA after WWII. I asked NH for a marriage search, but no response yet.
Do I really have to write to hundreds of city clerks to find this marriage? This is very depressing. How can a state have such a stange way to record marraiges?
It's like being in an insane asylum.
