Notes

Microfilm of original records at the Roanoke County Courthouse in Salem, Virginia.

Ministers' returns were lists made by the ministers of marriages they had performed. These lists were filed with the clerk of the County Court. Usually found loose, they were bound or copied into the marriage license book.

Includes index at the beginning of the register of marriages.

The marriage license book gives parties' names, date of marriage, by whom married, of what denomination, and date of return.

The register of marriages gives date and place of marriage, full name of the parties (husband and wife), age, marital condition (single, widowed, divorced), birthplaces, residences, parents’ names, husband’s occupation, name of person performing marriage ceremony, and remarks.

The register of marriages has pages where the ink has faded and is unreadable.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
