This collection contains marriage registers (1868-1925) as well as licenses and certificates (1926-1952) from the state of Michigan. In some cases, marriages prior to 1868 may have been recorded in a later register and may be found in this collection. Marriage records are particularly valuable documents because they often provide much more than names of the bride and groom and a marriage date. While forms differ, you may find the following details among the records:
- marriage date and place
- father’s name
- mother’s name
Due to privacy laws, images are only available for records that are more than 75 years old.
