Marriage Contracts and Deeds of Gift

Marriage CeremonyMost States did not require the marriage license to be filed at the court house until after 1900. This is unfortunate, as so many ministers were lax in this respect anyhow. Occasionally one sees where a minister published his ceremonies, but this is rare. This means that the genealogist must dig deeper. One source is neighboring church records who maintained church rolls, viz., baptisms, marriages, deaths and other church affairs.
