Good afternoon folks,
I have run into a problem with finding a marriage record in Texas. I went
to Ancestry.com and searched for a marriage between
Robert O. Kroll and Martha Naomi Turner. I found in the Ancestry Index the
date and place of marriage as 9 June 1984 in Dallas County, TX.
Next I sent a written request to the Dallas County Clerk including a money
order in the proper amount with a stamped self addressed
After about 3 weeks I got a response from Dallas County telling me the
marriage did not take place in Dallas County.
Next I called the clerk and was told the same thing on the telephone.
Next I called the State of TX Vital Records and was told they do not issue
marriage licenses but they will issue a verification of marriage
If the marriage was in Texas. They do not have a master state-wide index in
This couple is still very much alive but I do not wish to contact them
personally to tell them I need their marriage record.
Does anyone have a clue as to how this mixup happened?
