Gasconade County Marriage Records Index for the period 1822 - 2003.
This index has been carefully compiled by GCHS Archives & Records Center volunteers from paper documents and Gasconade County Marriage Record books. Both sets of original records, volumes and papers are housed at the Archives & Records Center. Indexing work continues by a volunteer at the Center. As of April 2014, indexing has been completed through 2003.
Information contained in the index is indicated by the column headings: Groom, Bride, Book and Page in the Marriage Records created by the Recorder of Deeds, the Officiant's name, the date of marriage, and, in some cases, other information found on the marriage document.
Marriage licenses were and are recorded in the county in which the license was obtained, not necessarily the same county in which the marriage actually occurred.
TO Access...The files are displayed in alphabetical order. You can search for either the groom's last name or the bride's last name by clicking on the corresponding graphic below.
Once the file appears, you can use the search feature of Adobe Acrobat program (not available in AdobeReader) by typing the word, date etc you are searching for in the "FIND" box (see graphics below) at the top of the file and then pressing enter on your key board. It could take up to 30 seconds to search the entire file for and then display/highlight the entry you made. If there are multiple places where your word, date etc appear in the document, the search will highlight the first instance. If that is not what you are looking for, press enter again and continue doing so until you either find the term or get to the end of the document.
