Ohio, County Marriages, 1790-1950 Free name indexes and images at FamilySearch-Historical Records.  Databases include Marriage Records, 1808-1951 available at FHL, and Marriage Returns, 1875-1950 available at FHL.  (For Licking County, the 1808-1951 database is variably extracted; often the Volume and Page number are not given.  The "image number" in the extracts refer to the image numbers in the microfilm, not to the image numbers as uploaded to the Historical Records site.  The links to on-line images in the Historical Records group for this database are wrong for at least Volumes 7 and 11, but the user can often find the wanted record by going to the next image in sequence.  In Volume 7 the images are about 8 MB each, and in Volume 11 about 5 MB each, so the dial-up internet searcher should be prepared for considerable load time.)

Ohio Deaths, 1908-1953 Free name indexes and images at FamilySearch-Historical Records. Records include such information as birth date of deceased, city, county, and state of death, name of spouse if married, names of parents, maiden name of mother, name of informant, if deceased was single, married, windowed or divorced, occupation of deceased and disposition of remains.
