Wedding - 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - Week #35

Week 35. Wedding. Tell us about your wedding. You may also talk about your future wedding, the wedding of a relative or shape this question to fit your own life experience.

Since I haven't been married and have no future wedding in sight (maybe some day!), I'm going to use this post to update the list of marriage records that I have for my ancestors:

My newest records are for my Rohrer family and were sent by Marj B. from her recent trips to Germany and Celina, OH. Thanks so much to Marj for sending these!

GGG-Grandparents Albert Rohrer to Walburga Fischer on Oct 18, 1846. Church record from St. Vitus Church in Ellwanger, Germany. Albert and Walburga had 2 children: Albert and Anna. Anna was my great-great-grandmother.

Another marriage for Walburga: Wilhem Gessler to Walburga Rohrer on August 23, 1854 in Celina, OH.
