6375Re: [jacksongenealogy] JACKSON COUNTY MARRIAGES
- Sep 11, 2005Go to the ALGENWEB Jackson County Website click
Jackson County Archives then click on Vital
Records, Birth, Death, Marriage this will take
you to a rootsweb.com search engine that will
search through all the Jackson County Archives
for the Surname entered. The marriages
transcribed so far are for 1851 thru 1881, any
marriages outside this time frame will have to be
done by lookups by myself or someone who has
ancestry.com. Though the marriages on ancentry
are supposed to be from 1850 to 1921 I have seen
virtually none for after 1900.
If you are looking for someone married in another
county or state you will have to lookup that
county's USGENWEB site and see what they have and
what each county's requirments are for ordering.
Madison County for one has an excellent website
but some counties have very little. Some counties
do have someone listed who will do lookups at the
courthouse for you.
Marriage certificates will include the name of
the Groom and Bride, who performed the ceremony,
and sometimes the parents names (though I have
never seen them listed), where performed, i.e.
the bride's house.
The Jackson County Probate Court needs the
groom's and bride's name, date of marriage, who
performed the ceremony and the OS Page number.
The lists at the Jackson County website has the
OS Page number and sometimes includes a license
number though ancentry.com does not. There are
two marriages per page so you will get the one
you asked for plus someone else's. Cost is $2.00
per page and a SASE included with the request.
