Marriage Look Up...SORTED THANKS!
« on: Monday 28 January 08 10:42 GMT (UK) »
Hi All

Is there somewhere I can look for a marriage in USA..I'm in Manchester ENGLAND...probably Pennsylvania, but not 100% sure...
William Ashworth to Edna Zeek......would be around the mid 1920's....they had a daughter Ethel Ashworth in 1827

Thanks

U.S. marriage records are kept by individual states. Information available ranges from states which have (mostly older) records online to states that allow no access.
See here for Pennsylvania:

Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Hi, On the 1920 census, Pennsylvania, Blair county, Altoona city,  a William born in England is listed as a widower at age 44. There is a single lady with him, "Ethel" listed at age 31. Both born in England. It does not say the relationship but it can only be brother and sister? They are lodgers. Hope this helps and doesn't confuse.

Cissy, 

1930  Geneva, Ontario, New York    Merrill Place

William Ashworth   Age: 55    Est Birth Year: abt 1875   Birthplace: England  Parents:  England    Age @ 1st Marriage: 47    Immigration Year:  1905  Occupation:  Dental Technician/Independent    Owns Home   Worth $6,000
Wife  Edna Z Ashworth 39   b. Pennsylvania  Parents:  Pennsylvania   Age @ 1st Marriage: 31
Dau   Ethel Ashworth 2 10/12   b. New York
Brother in Law   Charles Zeek 21  b. Pennsylvania   Single  Occupation:  None

Looks like their marriage was circa 1922  but could have been in New York or Pennsylvania.

Edit:   Checked  your previous posts  ---   Sorry for repeating this 1930 info you already had ---   didn't ocur to me you would have this already since you were still questioning the year of the marriage!
