Re: Perry County AL Marriage Data
In Response To: Perry County AL Marriage Data ()
This looks like the affidavit of the father of the groom, or one of the other relatives of the groom, who is attesting that there is no legal impediment (non-residents of the State, underage parties, etc.) to their marriage and may just have been the customary document required of any couple who wanted to marry in that County/State, as the Attestation would give the officer marrying them the legal authority to officiate at the marriage.
