I, Judith Moser, Clerk of the Orphans' Court, in and for the County and Commonwealth aforesaid, do hereby certify that the above and foregoing is a true and correct copy of the Duplicate Marriage Certificate of GUS DOYLE and BEULAH GERNER as of record of this Court; and that the same remains of record of this Court.
IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and affixed the seal of the aforesaid Court at Butler, in the County of Butler, and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, this 23rd day of JULY, A.D., 1993.

My Commission Expires Fitst [sic] Monday of January 1996
- This is an embossed transcription which (I believe) would serve as a legal document.
- This transcription of the duplicate certificate omits the occupations of the bride and groom; their residences before marriage; the names of their parents; and whether they had been previously married or divorced.
- Photocopies of the signatures of the bride and groom are missing in a court transcription.
Despite all of the above drawbacks of a transcription versus a photocopy of an original court record, if a court-made transcription is all that's available, I'd take it over having nothing.
