The Pennsylvania law requiring marriage licenses did not become effective until October 1, 1885.  Even after the law became effective there were challenges to the requirement that wound up in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court which eventually declared the requirement constitutional.

 The license transcriptions do not come close to representing the entirety of marriage licenses issued. The reasons for this are generally threefold.  First, the challenges to the marriage license law undoubtedly delayed a lot of the reporting.  Second, the editors depended on the County Recorder for the information. Third, many of the couples elected not to have their marriages and license information announced.

 We encourage you to check the Marriages section for more complete marriage listings.  We anticipate that this will be an ongoing project with information added from later years so check back often.
