You’ve heard the story before. Girl meets boy. Boy falls in love with girl. Girl proposes. And soon the couple finds themselves standing in a county clerk’s office asking about marriage licenses. Marriage records are an incredibly valuable resource for genealogists. Marriage records can give information about family members, dates, places, and more. FamilySearch.org has a large collection of records relating to marriage records. In this class, we will discuss the history of marriage records, learn about marriage records from different localities, and then talk about the resources of FamilySearch.org relating to marriage.
