These records can be used to identify the time and place that a marriage occurred and uncover many other helpful clues for extending the pedigree. Among these are the maiden name of the bride, the parish in which the bride and groom resided before marriage, and often the names and occupations of the fathers of the bride and groom. The names of the witnesses to the marriage can also provide clues to further research, as they may have been relatives or friends of the couple.
