In the 1890s there was consulate in Kobe, and I am trying to determine whether the consulate issued a particular certificate of marriage.
Did the consulate provide witness to such marriages?
If the consulate did them, would there be records in The National Archives?
The candidate for my great-grandfather is Cecil Zohrab Ede. There are records of him in the National Archives but they concern his probate.
The National Archives sent this email to me.
Thank you for contacting the National Archives. Details of the types of record we hold for overseas marriages can be found here. (http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/help-with-your-research/research-guides/birth-marriage-death-sea-or-abroad/)
I couldn't search for C.Z. Ede's records. Does anyone know how to do so remotely?
