This collection contains the indexes of the original parish records of over 198 parishes in Leicestershire England, which is an estimated 3 million names. The transcriptions begin as early as 1510 and end primarily in the early 1900’s. In these records you can expect to find the names of the groom and bride, and the date and place of marriage.
Marriage certificates represent one of the key primary sources for family information, typically being issued the same day as a marriage takes place. In some cases, religious-based marriage documents exist too, but the civil record of the marriage has always been required.
