Northwest Indiana Society Updates Lake County Marriage Index

The Northwest Indiana Genealogical Society (which represents Lake County and Porter County) has updated its Lake County marriage index. The index now goes up to 28 August 1926. NOTE: All marriage license applications before March 1905 only showed the bride and groom's names; after that, the applications included the bride and groom's names, birthdates and birthplaces, occupations and whether they were married before, as well as their place of residence, parents’ names and birthplaces.

This is an on going project for the society, with plans to index the county's marriage records up to 1957.
