RECORD OF MARRIAGES, 1885-1889. {series #14.25}

*Images of Each Page*

Below are links to the scanned pages of the Record of Marriages for the years 1885-1889 (*the original records extend beyond this date, to 1891, but that material has not been digitized and is available in paper copy only). The digitized information is divided into two sections, one for grooms and one for brides, with the records covering the entire state of Pennsylvania. The information is grouped alphabetically by the surname of the bride or groom, and then arranged chronologically by date of entry. Data provided about each marriage includes: name of bride, bride’s place of residence, bride’s place of birth, age and race of bride, date of marriage, name of groom, occupation of groom, groom’s place of residence, groom’s place of birth, age and race of groom, and county where license was procured.
