Re: Why two marriage certificates? And why different information? #records #usa

The information on my grandparent's county marriage record is all correct for my grandmother, but my grandfather lied about his place of birth, his place of residence, his age (borrowed his brother's), and his occupation.   Also, the rabbi who officiated was not the one who usually appeared on all other of his family records.  
I believe that the marriage was without his father's consent or knowledge, and grandfather took pains to disguise the event to keep it from getting back to him via the rabbi.
