« on: Sunday 18 November 18 13:21 GMT (UK) »
Leah Mazorkoff b. 1900 Liverpool married Lazarus Goldstein 1898-1948  in 1918 Liverpool.
They went to Detroit.  Sometime afterwards they divorced and she remarried and divorced again and remarried.

Divorce. from Lazarus Goldstein - Case Number #174599 Detroit City, Wayne County, Michigan.
Married - Harry Ginsburg 25/07/1931 Cuyahoga City Ohio
Divorce from Harry Ginsburg - Case Number #432400. C.P. Ct. Cuyahoga, Ohio
Married - Max Ross 02/07/1938 Cuyahoga Ohio

Is it possible to find these divorce records online or if I write to the Divorce Court will they search without precise date.

Appreciate and grateful for any assistance.

Thank you for the info. Never knew how Harry died.
Will contact Divorce Courts to see if they will search without a date or approx date.

It helps if you have exact dates or approximate dates (even if it is just the year), to make it easier for the clerk to find the case number in their records indexes.  However, in many court archives, there is an experienced employee who has been there long enough to be able to find the record just by the case number.

(1) For Wayne County Michigan, their older files before 1942 can be ordered from the archives.
Here is a website link where you can print out a Divorce Records Request and mail it in with a $40.00 Money Order (US dollars).  Since you know she married Max Ross in 1938 and can assume that she probably officially/legally divorced him before marrying someone else, when filling out your request, where it says "Approximate Year", you could say "before 1938" if that is all the information you have, but please be sure to also show the Case Number.

In order to avoid confusion, please use the American system of dates by showing the month first, then the day and then the year.   (Not the British system of day first, then month, then the year).

https://www.waynecounty.com/elected/clerk/records.aspx


(2) For Cuyahoga County Ohio, you can get information from them on how to order divorce case records by contacting them at:

     Cuyahoga County Clerk of Courts Office    (216) 443-7950
     Cleveland, Ohio 44113

Since we know she married Harry Ginsberg in 1931, she obviously divorced Lazarus Goldstein before 1931, so you would ask the clerk to check records before 1931.
