As with FindmyPast's presentation of civil marriage indexes from 1845-1958, Ancestry has now introduced a keyword search facility to its version of the collection, allowing you to also input the name of a spouse as a search term, and thereby to allow searches for marriages by two surnames, considerably narrowing down the possibilities.

The Ancestry search screen for the collection is available at


Pre-order my new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, through Pen and Sword (30 April 2013), or purchase early at Who Do You Think You Are Live 2013 in London.
