PENNSYLVANIA MARRIAGE RECORDS

Since September 30, 1885, marriage licenses have been required in Pennsylvania and are maintained by the Marriage License Clerk in the county courthouse of the county issuing the license. Before September 30, 1885 the issuing of licenses was not obligatory, but was intended for those cases where the banns were not published or the marriage in church was dispensed with. For these earlier marriages, church records and newspapers may provide information.

In the last few weeks, the Pennsylvania Archives has added some remarkable free online resources to the already-available Warrant Registers at:

Pennsylvania Land Records  "Scanned Land Records"Records of the Land Office Warrant Registers, 1733-1957

These pages include instructions on how to search the records, and an abbreviated history behind the early process of recording the land transactions.

1893-1906 - births and deaths were recorded by the Clerk of Orphans Court at each county courthouse. While the State Archives holds microfilm copies of these records for some counties for use by on-site researchers, mail inquiries should be directed to the courthouse of the county in which the birth or death occurred. Staff of the State Archives does not search microfilmed county records. For a complete list of county (Record Group 47) and municipal (Record Group 48) vital records found on microfilm at the Archives, consult the Archives website.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN (1864) 2nd Inaugural

With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan - to do all which may achieve a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
