One of the most useful items in family history research is the marriage certificate.  This certificate will give you details of the bride's maiden name and her father's name and occupation.  Witnesses at the bottom of the certificate will also give you some more names to research and may well be members of your family. Look at FreeBMD (link on frontpage of ancestorgateway site)

Has a marriage certificate given you an interesting lead in your research?  Let us know what you discovered.
