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.
