WEDDING WEDNESDAY–Detroit Free Press Newspaper Finds

wedding bells
Wedding day (22 Aug 1936 in Detroit, Michigan) for Harry Norman Gould & Elaine G. Croft.  They are the couple in the center - on the left is Robert Beach and on the right is Lucille Croft, who marry one another 6 yrs. later

The recent announcement that the Detroit Free Press is now available online for those of us outside of the Michigan area, has been fantastic for my research. Here’s a link to my post about this new resource Detroit Free Press 1837 to Sep 2015 now online.

It takes some ingenuity and a few search tricks to find what you’re looking for, but if you’re persistent it pays off.

I was able to find the marriage license listings for my father, Harry Norman Gould to his first wife, Elaine Gertrude Croft and the license for Elaine’s sister, Lucille Croft to her husband Robert Beach.

My Dad and Robert “Bob” Beach were best friends and they married sisters.
While I was growing up my Dad told many stories about his adventures and shenanigans with his friend Bob.

Here is the license announcement for my Dad & Elaine.


Here is the license announcement for Robert Beach and Lucille Croft.


While I did not find any photos or wedding details, at least I have this information.  Every bit of evidence we find adds validity to our research.

What will I discover today?  I can’t wait to find out.

Happy hunting,
Michigan Girl
