This book contains marriage records from: "The Journal of Dr. Alexander Balmair", a Frederick Parish priest, 1783-1821; Winchester, Virginia's, marriage bonds, 1790-1908 and marriages from Winchester City Hall from 1853-1931. There are roughly 4,776 marriages as found in the archives of The Handley Library, Winchester Virginia as well as over 28,000 names in the index. The books are presented as graphic images, so the user sees the works just as they were originally published. They are intended to look and function very much like "real" books, i.e., the user looks for entries of interest in the table of contents or index, and then turns to the page cited and scans it for the desired information. This is accomplished using the Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is included on each CD for Windows and Macintosh operating systems. Although there are no electronic indexes, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to navigate through the books and indexes, and to jump from one book to another.
