When the Index Entry at FamilySearch is Not Clear as to Location

Saturday, January 23rd, 2016

A search of the “Illinois County Marriages” on FamilySearch located a reference for Leroy Clark and Marie Idens[sic] marrying in “Henry, Illinois, United States” in 1918. The problem was that I was not certain if the marriage took place in Henry County, Illinois, or the town of Henry, Illinois.henrymarriage

The answer was there in the GS Film Number: 1435945. Searching the card catalog for that film number indicated that the marriage entry was taken from Henry County, Illinois, marriage records. That would also be the film that has an image of the actual marriage item from which this index entry was created. If an index entry on FamilySearch is unclear, search the card catalog for the roll number from which the entry was made. That will make things more clear and tell you where you can get the actual record.
