Thanks to Kenny & Amey at the McDonald County Recorder's Office and Bruce at the McDonald County Library, we've complied a complete Index of all Marriage Records from 1865 to 2009 - now available online to search and/or download to your computer!
This index includes all marriage licenses issued in McDonald county
from October 1865 to December 2009, with instructions on how to order
printed copies of the original record kept on file at the County
Recorder's office. The index can be viewed online, organized by the
husband's last name; or the entire index can be downloaded onto your
computer in a spreadsheet format.
A great resource for genealogists and historians!
