Notes

An index for Illinois, Cook County Marriages is available online, click here.

Microfilm of original records at the Cook County courthouse, Chicago, Illinois.

Beginning in 1894, marriage licenses of the city of Chicago are separated from other licenses of Cook County. Within each sequence of 100 numbers, the Cook County licenses come first, followed by licenses from Chicago. Licenses arranged numerically and chronologically. Some licenses in correct chronological order are misnumbered. Spade marks on licenses indicate numbering problem. Most years have out of order licenses indicated as (misc.).

Prior to 1904 licenses were held by the Clerk of the County Court.

A few licenses are for time prior to fire in 24 July 1871.

Includes male and female indexes. (Female indexes did not begin until 1878.)

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.
