Continuing the discussion (see yesterday’s post) of what might be found in The Colorado State Archives, we received the following search result:
BROIDA, Theodore D., ID 1248579, Marriage License, (no county listed), 1916-Aug 20
Theodore D. “Dave” Broida was the sixth of Gittel and John Broida’s eight sons, and married Lucy M. Shatzke on 20 Aug 1916. The search results verified what we already knew, although, if we order the marriage license, we might find the actual place of the marriage. We previously knew the marriage took place in Colorado, and this search result verified that too, but a city or county would be nice to know.
Notes, Sources, and References:
1) Photos from the Family Treasure Chest.
2) Lucy M. Shatzke was the daughter of Joseph S. and Sarah Shatzke, both born in Russia as were Dave’s parents.
3) Max Broida was an actor known as “Buster Brodie.” He appeared in many movies, mostly in bit parts. More to come about Max in a future post.
