What milestone marking our adult ancestors’ lives could have been more important than marriage? Inside History provides a guide to tracing elusive marriage certificates among the billions of records on FamilySearch, plus tips to help you pursue the commonly missed clues on wedding records.
Delving into ancestral love lives, we explore the regulations imposed upon marriage and cohabitation by the colonial authorities – and how our crafty convict ancestors got around them.
We track down three families across Australia and New Zealand whose treasured heirlooms played an important role in their wedding days, including the gorgeous veil worn by 16 brides, and a vase passed down for 132 years.
And if that’s not heart-warming enough, former Sydney Morning Herald food editor Jill Dupleix shares her favourite family recipes and the stories behind them. You’ll find your mind flickering back to your own treasured family dishes – and probably your mouth watering, too!
