Our weekly chat and topic challenge this week is to explore how we can find records in unexpected places. For instance -- if you can't find someone's marriage in BMDs or vital records, there may be information about it in military records, land records, or other records where providing proof of a marriage was necessary.

Have you found records in unexpected places? Share your experiences by chatting or by writing a self-answered question -- or both!

The chat will occur in the Conference Room all week long. Be sure to register yourself to get a reminder.

If you have any ideas for future topics, post them as answers to Weekly genealogy chat topics - now a week long event! and they might be used in an upcoming week!
