Historical marriage records for this county are difficult to locate and use. It appears that the original marriage registers beginning in 1887, were microfilmed in the 1950's and then destroyed. Unfortunately, the staff at the clerk's office are unable to locate the microfilm copies either (as of 2007). Researchers must resort to the applications and/or the original marriage license returns (microfilmed) to locate specific marriages. The microfilm is some what confusing to use and is mislabeled.
A considerable number of marriages are listed on the Western States Marriage Index although it is incomplete. The Ogden Family History Center has a continuing project to document and reconstruct Weber County marriages and will often be the only source of marriage data/documentation.
