Furnas County On-Line Resources


This is the first six volumes of the Furnas County marriage records. For copies of the record you will have to contact the clerk at the Furnas County courthouse.

ATTENTION, the Furnas County Clerk has informed me that mail requests for marriage records now cost $1.00. This fee barely covers copying and postage expenses, so this is a very fair fee.
