Tazewell County Genealogical & Historical Society (TCGHS) compiled this index using the original returned marriage licenses which were in storage at the Tazewell County courthouse. TCGHS also scanned the original license.
Each entry in the index contains Record Number, Bride & Grooms names, Date of Marriage, Surnames of Groom’s mother, Surname of Bride’s mother, and any other Surnames mentioned (for instance, if this was the 2nd marriage and the record said Mrs. Gail ROGERS, but her father’s name was George JONES, then JONES would be listed under “Other Surnames Mentioned”).
TCGHS can provide a copy of the original license for $5.00 postpaid. Orders may be made online, at the library, or by mail. You may contact the society for additional info by email or call 309 477-3044.
TCGHS is not responsible for any mistakes made in this index. Many of the names were originally handwritten – so the transcribers sometimes had a difficult time deciphering them. Researchers should check any possible spelling variations when searching for a license.
