Sorting out the history

If you caught my little bio post earlier, you might recall that I have a somewhat disheveled family tree. My father was married 10 times.
I have very little in the way of records, and I've been trying to track down some siblings and other family members.
I've posted on genealogy boards, to no avail, but now I've found another site that might help. This site offers searches of Marriage License Records nationwide by state, county, city or zip code for specific names. I have at least nine to look for....
I'd better opt for the one-year access option rather than just the single report. He crossed a few states as well. And after I track down his wives, I can start looking for their kids. I still haven't quite figured out how to find the ones from women he DIDN'T marry. Hmmm....fourteen kids. I don't think any two were from the same mother...... I've got my work cut out for me.
