Fake Family Record

This is an early marriage certificate with family record entries
on it. Not a Bible record exactly, but close enough for me.
It measures about 6" x 5", and the separation where it had
been folded too often was repaired with scotch tape on the
back. Yikes!!!

According to some undocumented records on the Internet, the
Minden listed here is Minden NY.
