Known Issues

Question #1 – How do you use the index to find the marriage records? Are the actual marriage records available or just the index?
Answer #1: As stated on the LearnMore page under the description of this collection: Marriage indexes are arranged by the names of brides and grooms with the year of the marriage and the license number. The surname of the spouse is shown in parentheses. Use the license numbers listed in this index to find copies of the marriage license records. Marriage license records for years 1885-1915 are available on microfilm at the Family History Library and Family History Centers. Marriage license records for years 1916-1951 are available at the City Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Question #2 –There are many missing pages in this collection. Do you have a comprehensive list of them? Is there a way to view the images?
Answer #2: Many of the pages were missed when the records were filmed. We do not have these images on the microfilm. You will need to contact the City of Philadelphia, Clerk of the Orphans’ Court to see about the availability of these missing records. Below is a list of the missing images.
