What is in this Collection?

This index is an electronic index for the years 1711 to 1909. This index is not complete for any particular place, region or time period. This collection may include information previously published in the International Genealogical Index or Vital Records Index collections.

How Do I Search the Collection?

To begin your search it is helpful to know:

  • The name of your ancestor.
  • The approximate year of marriage.
  • The place where your ancestor married.
  • The name of the intended spouse.

Search by Name by visiting the Collection Page:
Fill in the requested information in the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the ancestors in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to find your ancestor.

What Do I Do Next?

When you have located your ancestor’s marriage record, carefully evaluate each piece of information about them. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors.

I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now?

  • Pay close attention to the town of birth and/or parish of baptism. Other family members may have also been born or christened in those places.
  • Use the information to find other record types, like marriage or death records.

I Can't Find Who I'm Looking for, What Now?

  • Don't forget to try spelling variations of the ancestor's name.
