More Recent Marriages

Now that I have shown a few of the older marriage documents, I'll show you some that are more recent, or at least not in the 1800s.
This is a page from the Ohio County Marriages, found at Familysearch.org, from 1921.

These are not the marriage licenses themselves, however, it is an index book chocked full of wonderful information that was necessary to have recorded when the couple applied for their license.  Names of the spouses and where they lived, place of birth, parents' names, number of marriage of each spouse, who officiated the ceremony and date.  What great information.  Be sure to make good use of Family Search.  They are digitizing their filmed images with great speed.
