can anyone help? My great great uncle Edgar Reney McMullen moved to America and was naturalised in 1929. I know from his naturalisation papers that he married on 23/04/1926 in Portland, Oregon. His wife's name was Cecil, she was born on 29/04/1900 in Madison, Indiana, but I can't find either their marriage certificate or her birth certificate to find her surname. I've exhaused everything on Ancestry, does anyone know any other way I can get this info? thanks!

Have you tried findmypast.com as he should show in the brits married abroad if he wasn't naturalised until 3 years after he got married.
you should try posting this query on the http://www.rootschat.com/forum/ site, I posted a query last month about my DAD'S great great aunt, I knew she was appearing on the 1910.20 and 30 US census but when she changed to being married on the 1920 i had no idea how to look fr her marriage, as there is no central archive, all states have their owm, Anyway, I had some briliant replies and leads, one of which I used and I had a personal email from someone at the state archive and they gave me everything I needed! Plus her husbands death details.
