    Hi Chris

    This looks like an entry not from the IGI, but from one of the databases on the new-look version of the FamilySearch site, namely the Irish Civil Registration index. The marriage was registered in the Sligo district.

    I'm afraid I haven't discovered a way to find out the spouse*, so I look forward to hearing from other members if this can be done.
    *apart from sending off for a copy of the marriage certificate

    Full details are...

    name: William Albert Griffith
    registration district: Sligo
    event type: MARRIAGES
    registration quarter and year: Jul - Sep 1899
    volume number: 2
    page number: 261
    digital folder number: 4195895


    Have found a possible spouse ...

    name: Margaret Nelson
    registration district: Sligo
    event type: MARRIAGES
    registration quarter and year: Jul - Sep 1899
    volume number: 2
    page number: 261
    digital folder number: 4195895


    The same place, year, quarter, vol and page number is evident on both of these. However, I have no idea if there is more than one marriage per vol/page number (as per England/Wales marriage indexes)

    Safest way to find out who William married is to order a copy of his marriage certificate.

    How did you do that, olliecat? Is there a way to search by district and volume/page number?

    Good find, notanotherminer! That's handy having the father-in-law there. I wonder if that's how olliecat found the bride?

    No quick way that I can find I'm afraid. On family search, I typed in Sligo for the place, year 1899 (ticked exact), selected marriage. I didn't enter any names. I hunted through the results looking for any marriage in the correct quarter with a matching vol/page number. I found Margaret Nelson when I reached page 14 of the results. It didn't take that long since I ignored anything that wasn't in the Sep quarter.

    I didn't check the census till after.

    I do wish they would add a facility to enter the page/vol number on family search.
