Period Marriage Certificate

This is pretty self-explanatory: a high-resolution scan of a period marriage certificate. I've seen far more ornate versions, but this one strikes me as the kind of thing the New England folk of Lovecraft's stories would favor. As usual, click on through for the full size image.

Just remember that for the folks of Arkham, Innsmouth, Kingsport, and Martin's Beach -- all in Essex County, Massachusetts -- the word "State" must be changed to "Commonwealth" wherever it appears.

This is also true for marriages -- and for other official documents where the word "State" may appear -- in Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
