About Idaho, Marriage Records, 1863-1967

This database contains information on individuals who were married in select areas of Idaho between 1863 and 1967. Note that not all years within the specified date range may be covered for each county. Information that may be found in this database for each individual includes their name, spouse's name, spouse's gender, marriage date and location, county and state in which the marriage was recorded, residence of bride and groom, and source information. Marriage records are great sources for genealogists because they document an individual in a particular place and time as well as provide details about that person's marriage.

It is important that you use the information found in this database to locate your ancestor in the original records that this index references. Usually more information is available in the records themselves than is found in an index. For example, marriage records sometimes provide the birth dates and places of the bride and groom, their parents' names, their addresses, and witnesses' names, in addition to the information found in this index.

Most of these marriages were extracted from county courthouse records. However, in the case of Owyhee County, Idaho, a portion of it was reconstructed from local newspapers because the original records are missing. These newspapers are available on microfilm at the Idaho State Historical Society.
