What follows is a list of all Greening marriage entries from the Musgravetown Methodist church records held at PANL as of March 2005. This list constitutes a typescript of my handwritten extraction from photocopies of the original records, which is to say that I may have inadvertantly introduced some errors while transcribing and typing... as always, you should double-check against the original records. That said, if you spot any mistakes that I have made, please let me know at email@example.com.
