The Massachusetts, Marriage Index, 1901-1955 and 1966-1970 contains entries for Volume Number and Page Number yet only a very small percentage of the records use it. Without the ability to search on those values, it is nearly impossible to identify spouses since the original records do not explicitly contain both spouses. One must cross-reference through the volume and page numbers to identify a corresponding spouse. It would be terrific to if these values could be entered into the searchable index for all records.
