Marriage records are a valuable source for historical-sociological, quantitative research on social (im)mobility. More specifically, they contain marital as well as intergenerational mobility indicators. Most studies analyse both movements through social strata separately, without considering possible relationships between them. This paper deals particularly with possible connections between marital and intergenerational mobility. The argument dwells on the methodological implications of distinguishing between marital and intergenerational mobility when using marriage records as the empirical basis. Second, marital and intergenerational mobility patterns are analysed in connection, using Goodman's log-multiplicative association models.
