Hendricks County marriage applications index 1938-1939 added

An index to Hendricks County Marriage Applications Book 20 (which covers 2 September 1938 to 28 September 1939) has been added to the Hendricks County GenWeb site. The index is in progress - so far it covers 1905 through 1939.

ABOUT THESE RECORDS: Beginning in May 1905, Indiana law required the recording of marriage applications, which included biographical details about the bride and the groom, as well as their parents. In Hendricks County, the information from these applications was kept in a separate set of books from the marriage record from May 1905 until June 1950.

The Hendricks County Government's Archive has digital files of all of the marriage application books.
