What does this product give you?
This data set is an index to approximately 215,000 individuals who were married
in select counties of Arkansas, Texas, California, Iowa, Louisiana, Minnesota,
Missouri, and Oregon, between 1728 and 1850. Information that may be found in
this data set for each individual includes their name, spouse's name, marriage
date, and marriage location. Marriage records are great sources for genealogists
because they document an individual in a particular place and time as well as
provide details about that person's marriage.
It is important that you use the information found in this data set to locate your ancestor in the original records that this index references. Usually more information is available in the records themselves than is found in an index. For example, marriage records sometimes provide the birth dates and places of the bride and groom, their parents' names, their addresses, and witnesses' names, in addition to the information listed in this index.
