Unofficial Record?

Found the marriage record for an ancestor, but it's watermarked "Unofficial Record".  what does that mean

this is the record i'm talking about

"Indiana, Marriages, 1811-1959," index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 29 Jun 2013), Robert E Holloway in entry for Albert Baird and Mary ? Holloway, 1916.

Answer: The "Unofficial Record" watermark is in place to keep the page from being printed as an original to comply with record custodian contracts.   The records in this collection are for personal genealogical use.
