1a.  Marriage Records:  Selected U.S./International Marriage Records, 1340-1980 (Broderbund CD-403; online at Ancestry.com).  Marriages from Yates Publishing (P.O. Box 67, Stevensville, MT, 59870); these marriages are based on patron submissions, mostly in the form of family group sheets, so all marriages are in need of further documentation.  The family group sheets may be purchased from Yates, but the sheet is unlikely to cite its documentation.
