Treasure Chest Thursday - Church Marriage Record

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time to "show-and-tell" some of the treasures found in the papers of my parents and their families. I scanned some of these papers in the February Scanfest, and recently converted some of them to JPG format.

Here is a marriage record from the St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Leominster, Massachusetts for the marriage of my grandparents, Fred Walton Seaver and Alma Bessie Richmond on 21 June 1900:

The real prize for me in this document are the signatures of the two fathers of the couple - Frank W. Seaver and Thomas Richmond in the lower left-hand corner of the document.
