A True Story

In the corner of an attic in Chattanooga, Tennessee, several hundreds of files lay gathering dust. Between the hunger of rats and insects, they were slowly being destroyed.

At first, the young man looking through the documents could not understand them. With the help of a friend, he slowly began to realize the worth of his discovery. Between the spider webs, dust, and mold there were records, lots of records ... church records, bible records, cemetery records, and miscellanous records.

Finally the true nature of the documents was confirmed: they were the lost WPA Records.


With any luck, you will find the surname you are researching among these "LOST" wedding records compiled by WPA Workers. Included are original marriage bonds from 1823 to 1832 with bride's and groom's names, names of witnesses, and bondsmen.
