Considerations for Using this Source:

Every effort has been made to preserve the original text’s spelling and to locate all potential records for the covered time period. However, numerous county records have been lost to fires, floods, neglect, and carelessness.

The main goal of this repository is to provide a time and location for as many marriages as possible. Researchers are responsible for examining the original records (usually accessible on microfilm) and obtaining any other desired genealogical data.

In this repository, the marriage date is typically the date of marriage as stated in the original entry. However, if no marriage date is provided (e.g., the marriage return wasn’t submitted to the record keeper), the date of the license is used. Occasionally, a marriage may be listed twice in two separate counties, which typically occurs when a couple acquires a license in one county but marries in another. To offer more research clues, this repository includes both entries.

Some records may have been missed, misspelled, or unavailable to researchers. As a result, if a marriage is believed to have taken place but isn’t in this repository, further research in other sources may uncover the evidence.

Locating the Original Marriage Record

Regrettably, the original researchers did not specify the sources used in this process or provide citations for each entry’s origin. Nevertheless, diligent researchers seeking to review the original source will find enough information to guide them to it. Most early American marriages were documented at the county level (except in northeastern states), and this repository offers the county information for nearly every marriage.
