Polk County, GA
In working with early Polk County, Georgia records, corrections have been made only where I had personal knowledge of the individuals. Several marriages are listed twice with same or sometimes different marriage information on separate pages. They are listed here as listed in the books. The marriage date listed is the date recorded by the minister or JP that the marriage was performed by.
Volume 1 covers marriages in Book "A" and "B". The marriages are not listed chronologically in either book. Book "A" covers approximately 1852-1880 with a few marriages listed after 1880 and lists over 1500 marriages. Book "B" covers approximately 1877-1885 and lists over 800 marriages. It seems that the marriages were sometimes recorded in batches. Book "C" covers approximately 1883 to 1894 and lists over 1300 marriages. All books are listed alphabetically by Groom and Bride with date of marriage and page number.
The Polk County, Georgia marriage books were not separated by white’ or colored’ until book "D". They are all listed here together as in the original book. Col’, FM’, or FW’ was noted when marked in the book.
Volume 3 - Book "D" covers approximately 1894-1907. Book D is listed by Bride and Groom with date of marriage and page number and lists over 2200 marriages.
Books are soft bound with a heat binding. They may also be ordered loose-leaf for a discounted price.
