This will probably be one of the slower growing pages, but it will grow.
This is the page of "Before", and this is what i mean:
Most of the County books have Land Grants or Will's or other sections.
Most of them have a group I call the "Before".
Which means, for example:
John Smith Died April. 1. 1700 and left a will naming his Daughter Elizabeth Johnson as an Heir. Well then we know that Elizabeth Smith was married to Mr Johnson BEFORE April 1. 1700 and the marriages books will record it that way.
