More Pennsylvania Statute Fun: Where Are They Now? — 2 Comments

  1. I know, right? I’ve never seen anything like this recorded, though – even in register form. (Other than the aforementioned Quaker marriage certificates, which DO contain all those witnesses. However that is in meeting minutes, not a civil recording as this appears to require).
    I love the whole idea of tacking a notice to the meeting house, church, or courthouse door. It’s sooo made-for-TV! Can’t you just picture the scene where the giddy young couple bounce up the steps, nail it to the door, then bound happily away – their first steps in their lifelong commitment? If only the next step was to take that announcement back down and save it somewhere it would last for 300 years 🙂
