Wedding Wednesday - Smedley Marriage Certificate

Grace Ellen Poulsen & Calvin Buck Smedley
This is a copy of the marriage certificate for my paternal grandparents. Grandma sent it to me years ago when I was still a teenager (wouldn't want to do that again).  She was always good at sending me stuff like this and I didn't even have to ask.
She even made sure that all three of us kids had a Book of Remembrance and it was full of Smedley and Poulsen related pedigree sheets and family histories.

This photo was taken at their 50th wedding anniversary in 1970.  I will let you guess which one is me.

Friday is 91st anniversary of their wedding.

This newspaper article about their 60th wedding anniversary has been sitting in my Book of Remembrance for years.  Unfortunately I don't remember how I came to have it. Did I cut it out? Did grandma send it to me, or did mom cut it out?  Did it come from the Idaho State Journal? Or maybe the Paris Post?

If I have learned nothing else since my beginning years of genealogy and family history research, I have learned to NOTE WHERE THE THING CAME FROM!

Below is the napkin that I brought home from the 60th anniversary party.

Forty-five years to go for me and hubby!


  1. Very cool, Leslie Ann! Love the 1970 photo. Your grandmother certainly knew who to pass these things along to, didn't she?

  2. Hello, I love reading through your blog, I wanted to leave a little comment to support you and wish you a good continuation. Wish you best of luck for all your best efforts. marriage registration Delhi, marriage registration in Delhi.

  3. We have also been making plans for a DIY small family wedding. We got engaged at the destination venue but not want to share our day with our loved ones. I am just trying to find the best wedding venues in Chicago for my special day but not finding anything good in the budget. Can anyone help regarding it?

  4. These days, around half of all marriages end in divorce.

    That’s a pretty sad statistic... especially because so many of those divorces are preventable.

    In reality, many marriages end prematurely. Why? Well, there are two reasons.

    1.) Neither spouse knows how to prevent the passion, intimacy, and romantic connection from gradually fading away.

    2.) They make the 3 “Marriage Murdering Mistakes” that very few people know about... and sadly, these 3 mistakes can quickly drive your marriage into disaster and divorce.

    If you’re in this situation...

    If your marriage is dead-as-a-doornail...

    If you’re heading towards divorce, or even if you’re already at that point...

    Then a new video by marriage coach Brad Browning will show you how to stop the downward spiral and breathe some life back into your relationship. (Brad’s a freakin’ genius, by the way.)

    <== Begin Repairing Your Marriage *Today*

    I wish I could force every couple experiencing a marriage crisis to watch this new video... because the strategies Brad reveals in it are extremely powerful and might be the difference between “unhappily divorced” and “happily ever after”.

    The best part is that you can apply the techniques described in his video on your own... without your spouse even being aware that you’re making an effort to save the marriage.

    So don’t lose hope just because your partner refuses to attend marriage counselling, or won’t put in the effort to fix the problems that are slowly eating away at your marriage.
