United States Marriages

Findmypast have added over 5.7 million new marriage records from four American states. The latest additions to this huge collection include:

California marriages, 1850-1945

Indiana marriages, 1811-2007

Iowa marriages, 1809-1992

Massachusetts marriages, 1841-1915

This collection contains all the United States marriage records that are currently on Findmypast. Dating from the 17th to the 20th century, records will continue to be added to this collection as they are obtained.

There are both images and transcripts in this collection; however, some records only provide a transcript. Various marriage record types are included: applications, licenses, certificates, intentions to marry, registers, bonds, and affidavits. Based on the type of record and where it was created, the amount of available information will vary. There is also a small collection of banns records included.
