This section provides examples of 18th and 19th century marriage records from church registers. They were selected to show differing types and formats, and also to demonstrate a few special issues. Hungarian marriage records exhibit the greatest degree of consistency among church records. We see in early records that they usually do not name the groom's father. In a few records, the bride's father is also not identified. As time went on, more information was usually provided. But, unlike Spanish and Italian marriage records (which attempt to document that the couple are not cousins), in Hungarian records the grandparents of the couple are almost never identified.
