Lake County Marriages - by Groom
Lake County Marriage Registration Book Indexes: 1837 - 24 August 1931
The indexes below were developed from the Marriage Registration books
located in Lake County, Indiana, starting in 1837. The information in this
database will lead you to the original marriage applications that are on
microfilm at the Lake County Government Center. We are supplying a link
to a form that the researcher can send to the Lake County Clerks office to
receive a copy of the application(s) and license for $3.00 payable in check
or money order. [Lake
County Marriage License and Application Order Form]
Applications from 1837 to March 1905 only give you the groom and brides names,
the date of the application, the marriage date, the return date of the license,
and who married the couple. From March 1905 to the present the application will
give the researcher the marring couple, birth dates, place of birth, parents'
names, occupation, and place of residence. Other question asked were the person
married before, how did that marriage end, sometimes you will find death date,
divorce date and/or case numbers on the application.
This database contains a total of 124,270 marriage records spanning form 1837 to
24 August 1931
The clerks office ask that you request only three records at a time, certified
copies can only be obtained by an individual who is listed on the license, and
providing proper identification.
