The Groton Town Clerk also provides transcripts of marriage licenses for genealogical purposes.  The difference is that a transcript of the license shows all the information, such as mother and father, place of birth, etc.  In order to get a copy of a marriage certificate or a transcript you must either be one of the parties to the marriage; or the license must be over 50 years old; or both parties to the license must be deceased; or you must be a direct-line descent (i.e. child, grandchild, great grandchild, etc.).  The Town of Groton Marriage records begin with 1881.
