U.S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900

This unique collection of records was extracted from a variety of sources including family group sheets and electronic databases. Originally, the information was derived from an array of materials including pedigree charts and family history articles. This information is not considered reliable, but it can be a great place to collect facts, which must be confirmed with better sources. Some WikiTree projects will remove this source if found on profiles.

The marriage records in this database were provided by Yates Publishing. Yates Publishing has been publishing genealogical books, periodicals, and quarterlies since 1972. In 1981, the founder, Bill Yates, began a service to provide and collect the family history information in family group sheets. Called the Family Group Sheet Exchange, this service has collected over 200,000 pages of family group sheets on paper and several hundred thousand more on disk. For more information or to order an original Family Group Sheet on the Family Group Sheet Exchange, please visit Yates Publishing.

You can also purchase family group sheets directly from Yates Publishing: http://www.yates.montana.com/catalogue.html . I did this with the Breazeale family and I'm very glad I did, you'll receive PDFs of the family group sheets compiled by genealogists in the pre-internet age. It gives you an idea of the quality of the work of each contributing genealogist.
One of the items I purchased was a letter from the sixties with some unique family information. There's no guarantee that there will be anything useful, but I found that Yates was helpful in describing a little about what items were (i.e. gedcom, group sheet, lettter), so I could decide whether or not to purchase.

I just tried the link, and it worked correctly. You have to have a paid account to access the link in this profile. Even without signing in, I did not get the same error message you report.

ancestry.com is going through some system changes now, so that may be the source of the problem.
