+6 votes
I have a marriage certificate for Charles Getz (my great grandfather) and Audrey Buelk for Porter County Indiana. The date of the certificate is 2nd of Jan 1931. It states only her residence was at that time in Illinois. I am sure that my Grandmother (Alva Mae Getz (Broome) was born in Illinois from their union. But need more information on Charles he is quite elusive and would love to know more.

    So I have received the other half of the marriage certificate from Porter Indiana where Charles and Audrey applied for it. It states that he was born June 27th 1908,in Chicago Illinois and that his parents names are Jack and Marian (Marion). I have some information from family that says that he may of had a brother named Justin that lived in Superior...not sure on reliability but if it could help anyone to help me??
    Charles Getz (who I am seeking) states his birthday to be June 27, 1908 In Illinois. Born to Jack Getz of Scotland and Marian Nellons of Philadelphia PA.

    Whom he married on 2 Jan 1931 in Porter county Indiana. Audrey Madeline Buelk (My Great grandma) was 16 at the time of marriage and changes her birth year to 1912. From birth records it is shown as 2 Nov 1915. My Grandma Alva Mae Getz was born of their union. Their marriage either was annulled or separated when Audrey moved with Alva to Wisconsin somewhere between 1930 and 1940.
