Marriages to 1850
This database of Michigan marriages to 1850 contains
13,000 names. Each entry includes groom, bride, marriage
date, county, and state. Every name is indexed so you can
search for one name, or two names that are linked.
The marriage date is usually the date of marriage as
given in the original entry. However, when no marriage
date is given (e.g., the "marriage return" was
not provided to the record keeper), the date of the
license is used. In a few cases, a marriage will be
listed twice, but in two different counties. This most
often happened when a couple obtained a license in one
county, but were actually married in another.
These marriage records, compiled by Liahona Research at
the LDS Family History Library in Salt Lake City, UT,
unfortunately do not contain citations for the origin of
each entry. The purpose of this database is to provide a
time and place for as many marriages as possible. It is
up to the researcher to examine original records (see the
Family History Library Catalog--available at any LDS
family history center-- under the heading "Vital
Records" for the appropriate locality) and gather
whatever additional genealogical information is desired.
