Dear Wikipedia staff,

The article on my late husband Leif Erland Andersson is requiring a citation that I was his wife. I am having trouble locating the marriage license but have contacted Indiana public records. In the meantime will my passport as Gloria Lee Andersson do? Or else I have this family history that notes our marriage on page 3798?

Andersson, Per and Lindhardt, Johan. Långarydssläkten: Simonsstammen

Band V Stockholm: Drakings Bokförlag, 2014.  p. 3798.

I don't know how to add these in the source code.

Thanks,

Gloria

It looks like they want documentation of your wedding "in 1973 at the Beck Chapel of Indiana University.". Is there an old newspaper article that would have this?

I've temporarily updated the article pointing to here for citation. Hopefully someone will be able to show us what to do.

Monroe County is sending me a link to our marriage licesense today. Will that be enough evidence? Again, I am not sure how to format ref. to a marriage license in your source code.

This is important to me because I am attempting to build bridges between the US and European science fiction writers and fans. Thank you, Gloria (Andersson) McMillan

I'm not sure how to format this, either. If you scan in the license and upload the image, maybe that will give us an idea.

Hello, Mark!

I had to scan this in two pieces since it is linger than letter-sized. I hope you can ask somebody how to cite this document as evidence of our marriage.

Thanks,

Gloria

I have just searched for "Leif Erland Andersson" Gloria, but all you get are Wikipedia and Wikipedia copies. Seems like there is nothing online.

A newspaper article would be nice - and it would be a way, in which you would not have to upload confidential data like what you have in your passport. Note that this newspaper does not have to be online - a version on real paper would do just fine.

Concerning the Långarydssläkten: Simonsstammen, Band V: Has this book been published by a known publishing house? Or is it kind of a private family book, which is passed from generation to generation?

That Swedish family history looks like a print on demand POD book.

File name here at Wikipedia is: File:Leif and My Marriage License.pdf

It went wherever uploaded stuff goes.

My brother-in-law is asking if there were news stories in Sweden. No answer as yet.

I hope it shows up there. I did a successful upload to Wikipedia. I am still not finding a story. Maybe there was one but in what album or where I ut the clipping I don't know. The license should be enough proof.

uploaded that file to Wikipedia Commons. I hope it can be deleted once it is given in evidence. This is rather personal.
