The major sources of these early records were church marriage registers and the index to South Australian marriage registrations. Newspapers of the day supplied additional records.
Weddings before civil registration commenced (mid 1842) and others recorded in church marriage registers but not submitted to the Registrar of Births, Deaths & Marriages are included. Also, the maiden names of previously married women have often been determined. For more information, see the article on the accuracy of family history sources.
