Marriage

The volunteers led by Jane Thompson that helped with the Marriage Record Project included: Wyndell Taylor, Vic Freeman, Brenda Hawkins, Janis Richardson, Jack Milam, Sherry Osburn, Marjorie Stansel, Barbara Worsham, Cindy Casey, Barbara Timm, Freeman Porter, Felice Dissmeyer, and Arlene Woody.

You will notice that there are several images missing from this transcript for Book E. The pages in Book E were so faded they were barely legible and as a result, could not be successfully photographed.

Several people have written asking where to obtain a copy of the marriage certificate.  Marriage certificates are prepared by the Probate Court in Bartow County.   To create these certificates, one of the clerks looks up the marriage in the Record Book (the same book / image that is attached to this transcript) and transcribes it onto a nice looking form.    Please provide the book/page number and names of bride and groom when ordering a Certificate.   Click here for Bartow County Government website.
