Records of marriages in the United States of America from 1650-2010 are to be made available online.
The following information comes from Findmypast:
“Findmypast, in partnership with FamilySearch International, will launch the single largest online collection of U.S. marriages in history.
“Covering 360 years of marriages from 1650-2010, when complete this landmark collection will contain at least 100 million records and more than 450 million names from 2,800 counties across America. More than 60 per cent of these marriage records have never before been published online. When complete, this collection will only be found in its entirety exclusively on Findmypast.
“To kick start the collection, Findmypast has launched the first 33 million records of this ambitious project. The records include marriage date, bride and groom names, birthplace, birth date, age, residence as well as fathers’ and mothers’ names. Customers with family trees on Findmypast will benefit from leads connecting relatives on their trees with the marriage records, thus generating a whole new source of research.
“Findmypast will release millions of marriage records every quarter and aims to complete the entire digitisation project by the end of 2017.”
