How to Use the Record

To find a marriage record, you will need the approximate year and place the event happened. You may need to search other records to find clues about this.

Expand your search of marriage records to include family members, such as when and where children were born, records of brothers and sisters and possible relatives found in the area where your ancestor lived. This can help narrow down the place to search in other records.

See what records exist in the family, such as Bibles, letters, obituary clippings, or records from previous research by yourself or a family member.

County marriage records written before 1888 can be found at the Provincial Archives for several counties.
