As I noted in With Lots of Help from My Friends - the Grieser Birth Record, geneablogger Nick Gombash found the birth record of my wife's second great-grandfather, Ignatius Grieser, in Bühl in what is now Baden-Württemburg in Germany. Knowing the birthplace, from Ignatius Grieser's marriage record, led Nick to find an online database with images from the Landsarchiv Baden-Wurttemburg database:

"The year for these marriages is 1820. The date is in the first line of the paragraph: "siebenzehnsten Aprill"; April 17th. The groom is the 25 year old Xaver Griesser, son of Xaver Griesser and Katharina Keller. What's odd, is that I can't find the bride's name in the paragraph at all. There is no underlined bride's name like in the other marriages on these two pages. Her name is clearly written on the side though "und Anna Weissenberger".. and Anna Weissenberger. Strange.
"Stay on that page and look at the last marriage on the right page. The marriage date is "zehnsten Heumonat"; July 10th. The groom is Joh. (Johann) Z..? (middle name definitely begins with Z) Griesser. He is 21 years old and the son of Franz Griesser and Katharina Hofmayer. The bride is Monika Griesser. She is 24 years old and the daughter of Xaver Griesser and Katharina Keller. Monika is a sister to Xaver! :)
"Also.. there's a Dörflinger marriage below the Xaver Griesser marriage. I wonder where Elyse's family is from? :)"
