First Name:

Marriage records were kept quite early in all counties prior to 1910. They usually contain:

  • the full name of both bride and groom.
  • an indication if this was the first or second marriage.
  • the residence of the bride and groom.
  • the person performing the marriage.

In some instances, if you can get the marriage application or license, it might tell the ages of the couple, the names of the parents, and the maiden name of the wife.

However, records vary from county to county. Once again, many are available at the Family History Library and on loan through local Family History Centers.
