== What is in This Collection? ==
  
There may be entries that cite a specific source such as the following:
+
This index is an electronic index for the years 1800 to 1958. This index is not complete for any particular place, region or time period. This collection may include information previously published in the [[International Genealogical Index (IGI) (FamilySearch Historical Records) |International Genealogical Index]].
  
*"Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850: a Family Register for the People" by James Arnold
+
== What Can These Records Tell Me? ==
*"Paul Dingwell Genealogical Collection" by Paul Dingwell
+
The records in this collection include the following information:
*A county or state vital record registration
+
* Name
 +
* Name of spouse
 +
* Marriage date and place
 +
* Parents' names
 +
* Date and place of birth
 +
* Spouse's date and place of birth
 +
* Age
 +
* Marital status
 +
* Race
  
These entries are in this collection for one of the following reasons:
+
== Collection Content  ==
 +
=== Coverage Table  and Map ===
  
*They were submitted by private individuals to the LDS Church and as such are part of the IGI resulting in their inclusion in this index.
+
A coverage table for this collection is available in the wiki article [[Ohio Marriages, Coverage Table (FamilySearch historical Records)]].  
*They have been indexed through the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church. If this is the case, the index they are a part of has been included as part of this database.
 
  
The Vital Record Index databases are not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records although some sub-indexes (an index to a set of records within the database) have been found. When we identify a sub-index, we remove it from the database and post it separately on FamilySearch under its appropriate title.  
+
To see a coverage map of FamilySearch's holdings of Ohio county marriages, click [http://user.xmission.com/~jsvare/FR/OH_FRM.html here].
  
For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. In 1998, a few of the entries were published on 7 CDs by the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the "North America Vital Records Index." This is an index of some marriages throughout Ohio. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region.&nbsp; This index is not complete for any particular place or region.<br>

== How Do I Search This Collection? ==
 +
Before searching this collection, it is helpful to know:
 +
*Name of the person
 +
*The location or date of the event
  
This collection includes the years 1800 through 1958.&nbsp;

{{Tip|More images are available in the FamilySearch Catalog at [https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/2367319 Ohio, Marriages, 1800-1942].  Some catalog records link to multiple references.  In this case, click on a reference to find a camera icon to see images.}}
  
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored this index to help individuals find information about their ancestors.  
+
=== How Do I Analyze the Results? ===
 +
Compare each result from your search with what you know to determine if there is a match. This may require viewing multiple records or images.  Keep track of your research in a [[Use_Appropriate_Forms#Prepare_a_Research_Log | research log]].
  
Church records and civil registration were official records and are some of the most reliable sources of information available for those who were born, married, or died in Ohio.  
+
== What Do I Do Next? ==
 +
Indexes and transcriptions may not include all the data found in the original records. Look at the actual image of the record, if you can, to verify the information and to find additional information.  
  
=== Citation For This Collection  ===
+
=== I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now? ===
 +
*Search for other vital records such as birth and death
 +
*Use the information found in the record to find land, probate and immigration records
 +
*Use the information found in the record to find additional family members in census records
 +
=== I Can't Find the Person I'm Looking For, What Now? ===
 +
*If your ancestor does not have a common name, collect entries for every person who has the same surname. This list can help you find possible relatives
 +
*If you cannot locate your ancestor in the locality in which you believe they lived, then try searching records of a nearby town or county 
 +
*Try different spellings of your ancestor’s name
 +
*Remember that sometimes individuals went by [http://usgenweb.org/research/nicknames.html nicknames] or alternated between using first and middle names, or even initials
 +
*Consult the [[Ohio Record Finder]] to find other records

This collection is a partial index of records for the localities listed below as of April 2010. The table below shows the number of records by locality. Localities not listed may not have any records in this collection.
 
 
 
Most of these records date from the time period indicated in the columns below; however, there may be records before and after these dates. Record counts where the locality information was incomplete are included below under the country name. Because of this, you may wish to search only by state.
 
 
 
As this is an index of records compiled from various sources, it is strongly recommended that you verify the information in original records. Due to privacy laws not all records may be displayed.

What is in This Collection?

This index is an electronic index for the years 1800 to 1958. This index is not complete for any particular place, region or time period. This collection may include information previously published in the International Genealogical Index.
