Hendricks County marriage applications index 1942-1943 added

An index to Hendricks County Marriage Applications Book 23 (which covers 10 June 1942 through 12 November 1943) has been added to the Hendricks County GenWeb site. The index is in progress - so far it covers 1905 through 1943.

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.
