Ancestral Sources Tutorial ~ Enter Marriage ~ (7) Create Repository Link


In the same way that a Source cites the derivation of one or more Facts, a Repository cites the owner of one or more original Source documents.

Marriage Certificates are lodged with the General Register Office of The National Archives at Kew.

So to cite this as the Repository, use the Link a repository… option.

In the Repository window select Link an existing repository to this source, and from the Repository dropdown list select General Register Office if it is available.

Otherwise, select Link a new repository to this source and enter the Name as General Register Office, the Address as The National Archives, Kew, Richmond, Surrey, TW9 4DU and the Telephone as 020 8876 3444.

Click OK to close the window.

Alternatively, the Repository could cite an online genealogy website, such as Ancestry UK or Find My Past, from where the marriage records were obtained.

Other records obtained from the same place would simply link this existing Repository to the Source.
