Find a marriage record in FreeBMD, but don’t know which parish it was in? I read an article “Get more out of FreeBMD” in the October, 2010 issue of Family Tree Magazine UK, which talked about how you could use FreeBMD to find the parish where the marriage took place. This article was followed up in the December, 2010 issue with an article “Parish Match” by Sophie Pigott. These articles present an exciting strategy that will save hours of searching through parish registers to find the parish where a marriage was solemnized. For a summary of the steps you follow, see the “Using the indexes in FreeBMD to find where a marriage took place” section of the England Civil Registration article in the FamilySearch Research Wiki.
