Begin your search by finding your ancestors in the index. Name indexes to marriages make it possible to access a specific record quickly.

When searching the index it is helpful to know the following:

  • The names of the bride and groom

  • The marriage date

Use the locator information found in the index (such as page, entry, or certificate number) to locate your ancestor in the marriage records from Florida.

You may need to compare the information of more than one marriage to make this determination.
