What Does the Database Really Include?
There are two references because one entry was created from the actual marriage record and the other was pulled from the marriage register. The name of the bride was spelled differently, but the entries were created from separate materials--although the register entry was likely created from the marriage record.
Even looking at the images it's not clear where the images are from--the record book, series, etc. I only knew because I've used the films of the records and have done quite a bit of work with actual marriage records in their original form. Always try and determine where the original came from. In this case, it is not really clear immediately.
