Genealogy Tidbits

St. John's Wesley Methodist Marriages

What follows is a list of all Brentnall marriages in the St. John's Wesley Methodist Church records held at PANL as of August 2004. This list constitutes a typescript of my handwritten extraction from photocopies of the original records, which is to say that I may have inadvertantly introduced some errors while transcribing and typing... as always, you should double-check against the original records. That said, if you spot any mistakes that I have made, please let me know.

Some comments about this list:

* The entries below are in the same order as presented in the church records, which was not always in chronological order.

At PANL these records are in several volumes as follows:

* 1905 - 1914
* 1914 - 1919
* 1919 - 1923

The format of most of the entries that follow is as follows:

* Line 1: Marriage Number, and Groom's name, abode, occupation, etc
* Line 2: Bride's name, abode, etc
* Line 3: Marriage date and location
* Line 4: List of witnesses

Entries are separated by one or more blank lines.
