CLARK - Marriage Lookups & Possibly Death Lookups
« on: Friday 22 January 21 08:52 GMT (UK) »
Hi all,
I'm not sure if this is possible, but I'm hoping that someone could assist me with a number of lookups for sisters that I'm struggling to find out what happened to.  I am needing to do this as a process of elimination, due to not knowing for sure who my great grandmother's parents were (long story).  I'm not sure if Marriage lookups show the names of the parents, but if they do, then their parents are William Henry Clark and Emma, nee Keen/Keene.  The sisters names are:

Clara Clark, born 1 July 1874
Eliza Clark, born 25 May 1877
Helen Clark, born 13 Feb 1884
Alice Clark, born 21 Nov 1885

They were all born in the Mosgiel, Otago area, so were possibly married there as well.  I did find an entry for Eliza marrying a Bunten, but further research indicated that this was a different Eliza Clark.  Any assistance would be most appreciated.  Thank you.

No, the index does not show parents.

For instance this was the result looking for marriages for a Clara Clark between 1890 & 1920


1912/4470   Maud Clara   Clark   Albert William   Heissenbuttle   
1916/1885   Clara Adeline   Clark   Walter Herbert   Martin
1902/4225   Clara   Clark                    William   McAuslin   
1906/4416   Clara Augusta   Clark   William Henri   Sherwood


If you know for sure yours didnít have any other names, then she could be the one who married William McAuslin.   There might be newspaper notices too.

What about looking for your GG grandmotherís birth certificate?  Did she grow up with a different surname? 

Do you know the year she was born (to narrow the range for searches.).

Thank you for your response - I've been using the BMD website in the hopes of finding the answers I need, but nothing concrete so far.  For some reason I thought that some members have access to other Marriage records (possibly on CD?) that did include additional information.  I can't look at GGgrandmother's birth certificate, as I do not know for sure who she was, or who GG grandfather was.

DNA matches have lead me to this particular family, but I'm needing to find a way to confirm the connection.

Thank you so much for that, as I knew Eliza had a son born in 1903 (can't find his birth record!) but had no idea who the father might be.  His name was Eric Clark, and he died in 1911.  It was from his Death printout that I found out Eliza was his mother.

For some reason I thought that some members have access to other Marriage records (possibly on CD?) that did include additional information. 

No, no additional information, CD is just the transcription of same information that is on the BDM website.
