Divorce records

About a year ago I was contemplating sending off for divorce papers related to an ancestor of mine. Never did, and now those papers are on Ancestry RESULT!!!!!

So happy I did not waste my money.

And a copy of the original marriage certificate was there as well. Lots of information.

Beats playing Solitaire when you are bored.
HavenĀ“t looked yet, but would imagine they are addictive.

If you want to waste several hours try looking at the new Divorce records on Ancestry! I didn't find the one I was hoping for, but got really hooked reading all the petitions etc - some even have copies of the marriage cert. too. I was a bit puzzled at first as the names coming up weren't anything like the one I was searching for, but then realised that anyone named in the petition is also indexed. All very interesting, if somewhat time consuming!
