 RANDOLPH COUNTY MARRIAGE APPLICATION RECORDS Note: It may be confusing for people looking at marriage license applications for Randolph county, Indiana. The marriage application record book is a book that has 2 half pages inserted between each of the full pages. This was their way of recording more information than would fit on two pages. It is necessary to look at three images to see all that is avaiable from these marriage applications.The marriage application has 20 pieces of information but you won't get all of it if you only look at one image. Click the arrows on the top of the image to get to the next image. I have inserted a link to use for an example  If you look at the top of the image on the left side you can see the column numbers skip columns because the page is only a half page. In this example image you can see that the column number goes from 7 to 19 because columns 8 through 18 are on the half pages.

Randolph county marriage license applications have a wealth of knowledge don't miss out because you didn't know there was more on the next image. 



Known Issues

NOTE: For a way to determine what digital records are likely to be found within a collection or how to find missing images elsewhere, see Article 56000, Using Film Notes in the Catalog to determine the content of a final browse point in Historical Records.

NOTE: Most missing records are available on microfilm. See Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche for instructions on ordering microfilm as well as finding a local FamilySearch Center where you can view the films.

Question #1: Some records are missing. Where can they be viewed?
Answer #1: See answers below for information about known missing records and their respective film numbers, if available, or alternate online location:
• Some of the Wabash County marriage records from Films 1409355 and 2240284 are not indexed to date.
• Some of the Warrick County marriage records from Film 549453 are not indexed to date.
• Some of the Wayne County marriage records from Films 1846357 and 1846360 are not indexed to date.
• Some of the Wells County marriage records from Film 2318671 are not indexed to date.

Question #2: My ancestor has been indexed with only the groom’s name and no bride. Can you explain this?
Answer #2: In some cases you will find that it took several images to capture all the information from the records. For instance, at the browse point Hendricks >1901-1906 Volume 28 > image 93, you will see the image shows page 26. There are page inserts within page 26 to complete these records. The first page shows Groom’s name and information and the Groom’s Father’s name. Image 94 is still page 26 with the Groom’s Mother’s maiden name, the Bride’s Full name and information. Image 95 is still page 26 and has the Bride’s place of birth, her parent’s names, the place of the marriage, by Whom Married and the Date of the Marriage. Thus, it takes three images to get all the information for these marriages. Each set of images has been indexed separately. You will need to scroll the images and then search for the additional names as shown on the image.

Question #3: In several browse points, the left side of the page does not pair up with the correct right side of the page. Is there a solution for this problem?
Question #3: Since some pages are numbered (or dated including names), you can search the previous or next images for the correct right side page that matches with a left side page (initial page). The following list of known browse point discrepancies describes the correct page pairing:

  • Parke > 1882-1888 Volume null:
    The left side of image 37 (page 72) is paired with the right side of image 38 (page 73);
    The left side of image 39 (page 74) is paired with the right side of image 37 (page 75);and
    The left side of image 38 (page 76) is paired with the right side of image 39 (page 77).
    The left side of image 47 (page 92) is paired with the right side of image 48 (page 93);
    The left side of image 49 (page 94) is paired with the right side of image 47 (page 95); and
    The left side of image 48 (page 96) is paired with the right side of image 49 (page 97).
    The left side of image 81 (page 160) is paired with the right side of image 82 (page 161);
    The left side of image 83 (page 162) is paired with the right side of image 81 (page 163); and
    The left side of image 82 (page 164) is paired with the right side of image 83 (page 165).
  • Washington > 1833-1837 Volume C:
    The left side of image 90 (page 61) is paired with the right side of image 91;
    The left side of image 91 (page 65) is paired with the right side of image 97;
    The left side of image 94 (page 64) is paired with the right side of image 90;
    The left side of image 97 (page 69) is paired with the right side of image 98; and
