Western Michigan Genealogical Society
An index to the marriages recorded in Kent County, Michigan from 1845 to 1929.
The Western Michigan Genealogical Society is in the process of computerizing the index to the early Kent County marriage records. The index is being placed on the Western Michigan Genealogical Society’s website for your benefit.
Currently there are 152,744 records in the database. When it's finished, each person will (should) appear in the index twice since the Kent County Clerk’s records have each marriage indexed under both the first spouse and the second spouse's names.
The originals are held at the Kent County Clerk’s Office, and you can request copies of any records of interest from them.
Download this form and complete it as instructed. While it doesn't have a space for the Book and Page Numbers that our index provides, write them on the form in the Marriage License section, and indicate that you don't know the date (unless you do of course).
Include payment as instructed on the form.
Or you can order online, but at this time the online form isn't set to accept the Book and Page number. This is being worked through currently, and so may change in the future. You can do this online by going to this page https://www.accesskent.com/VitalRecords/ and clicking the link at the bottom for "Marriage Records 1845 to Present".
The following are volunteers who have willingly spent their time on this project.
Good Luck with your searches!!!
