email I recieved from a genealogy look up out in Calif. (thank you Steph)
I could not find Patricia Andree and James Sargent on the marriage index for Ventura Co but I did find them on the state index via Vitalsearch. It's a little confusing, though because Vitalsearch states the location of application is county 56 (Ventura) but the local file #27639 is for county 70 (Los Angeles) I always thought it was in Ventura. This could be possible~will be checking this out in the next few days
I called our local recorders office and apparently this means they applied for the license in Ventura but got married in LA - OR the other way around. She thought your best bet was to request the marriage from LA. OK, question~thought you had to marry in the same county you applied for license?
FOLLOW-UP~ 2/23/11 Have found the possiable record in question, thou sending for it blindly. After several long distant calls to Calif. with no hard fact, but a hint of ...well went ahead to see just what will come of this, now waiting on recieving it in the mail.
(i do so hate the fact that these government record places won't help out more, even when you have all the needed data for the record location...i just want to know if they do have the record before sending any money to them, which isn't refundable if no record is found!)
The only other information on Vitalsearch is that the groom was age 19 and the bride age 20. Also, it was hard to read the day they married, could be Dec 5 or Dec 6 in 1952. Funny story ~Dad was really 20 years old , his age was fibbed to get into Military back in late 40's / early 50's! That is another post in itself!
If my memory serves me, dad's age on my Birth Certif. states he was 21 and mom was 22. So now it is on to Los Angeles to see if I can locate this wayward record of my parent's union.
