Indiana Marriage Laws as referenced to "Age" Source: Information compiled by Harold Henderson, CG

Pre-1850 County marriages  Transcribed by WPA, between 1932-1939.  Transcribed from index at the Indiana State Library.

Post-1850 Marriage Index - Transcribed by WPA, between 1932-1939.  In copying data from old site I found that the transcription and typing was not completed. We could use some help in locating and obtaining missing information, Thanks Jim.

Post 1850 and other published announcements found in local papers are sought to fill these gaps (we have a start but sure need some help here :).
