Is Something Amiss With "A Miss?"

A marriage record may indicate the bride was "Miss" or "Mrs." There is also the possible that the title is missing. A missing title only indicates the title is missing and the bride may or may not have had a previous husband. 

And always make sure you read the "Miss" or "Mrs." correctly. For some writers the two words look alike--and genealogists know there's a big difference.

  1. At one time Mrs. could also denote a woman who was highly respected and/or "rich".
