Example

In the newly added Maryland Marriages collection to MyHeritage, you can find the marriage record of George H. Ruth Jr. and Helen Woodford.

George H. Ruth Jr., better known as “Babe” Ruth, married Helen Woodford on October 17, 1914, in Ellicott City, Howard County, Maryland. Babe Ruth, an iconic figure in American sports history, was a professional baseball player whose Major League Baseball career spanned 22 seasons from 1914 to 1935. Known as “the Bambino” and “the Sultan of Swat,” Ruth initially gained fame as a star pitcher for the Boston Red Sox and later achieved legendary status as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and one of the greatest baseball players of all time.

The detailed records from the Maryland Department of Health provide a wealth of information, including the country and town of marriage, names and ages of the bride and groom, their residences, their colors, the date of license issuance, the date and location of the ceremony, and the person who performed the ceremony, along with the signature of the clerk of court.
