Hendricks County marriage applications index 1949-1950 added

An index to Hendricks County Marriage Applications Book 28 (which covers 5 March 1949 through 27 May 1950) has been added to the Hendricks County GenWeb site. The index now covers all 28 volumes of the marriage application books (1 May 1905 through 27 May 1950).

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. Then beginning in June 1950, the application information was recorded in the same set of books as the marriage record.

The Hendricks County Government's Archive has digital files of all of the marriage application books (1905-1950).
