Amaneunsis Monday - February 1925 DAR Magazine, Davidson County, TN Marriage Records

In a fit of cleaning out my pile of genealogy magazines, I ran across one that must have belonged to my mother.  It's the Volume 59, Number 2, February 1925, Daughters of the American Revolution Magazine.  I have no idea why my mom would have saved it; I've looked through it and don't see any connections to our family.  It did have a couple of interesting articles, along with an abstract of some marriage records of Davidson County, TN, partially included below:

The information continues on through 1802.

There is so much information on-line these days that it's easy to forget how volunteers hand transcribed old records and published them for use by other family historians.   It inspires me to take part in one of the many indexing/transcription projects that benefit all of us.

I'm sure this information must be available on-line, but if it's not and you are interested in the additional information contained in the article, please let me know.
