Marriage License - Victor and Pearl Lund

I'm excited to work further back on the Taylor side of the family, but before I can do that I need to make sure I know all I can about each generation. Starting with Victor Lund and his wife Edith Pearl Taylor.

Last year I found the record of Victor and Pearl's marriage on Family Search, but it was only the index and no image. On one of my trips to the Family History Library, I pulled up the film and copied it.

It's so interesting to see that they were married in the same place as Troy and I were, the Salt Lake Temple. They were young, 19 and 22, which is only one year younger than Troy and I when we married almost 100 years later.

I love that this document also has their signatures:

I also love looking at photographs of our ancestors. It's interesting how much Troy and our son James look like Victor -
