For those of you with roots deep in the…left atrium of Texas, the Collin County, Texas, Marriage Index, 1800–2010, lists two centuries of brides, grooms, and marriage dates. And if the marriage didn’t last, you’ll have a better chance of finding that recorded in the updated Texas, Divorce Index, 1968–2011.

Finally, two more military database updates in time for Veterans Day, one from over here and one from over there: British Army WWI Pension Records, 1914–1920 and U.S., Index to General Correspondence of the Record and Pension Office, 1889–1904.
