Notes from the Male Index of the
Allegheny County Marriage License Docket


In 1885, Allegheny County passed legislation requiring Marriage Licenses. The Index to the Marriage License Docket covers the years 1885-1925 and is organized using the Russell Index. The Russell Index sorts names by the first letter of the last name. Fortunately, Mc is treated as a separate letter. Within the last name, first names are alphabetical and then sorted by year.

There was earlier legislation requiring Marriage Licenses in the City of Pittsburgh, however, Pittsburgh was smaller than it is today. Areas such as the North Side and Lawrenceville were originally separate cities that were later annexed into the City of Pittsburgh. Even with these limitations, the Index to the Marriage License Document has been a useful tool in genealogy research.

Women are listed by "name previous to marriage." In the case of a widow, for example, this would be the name of the first husband, not the maiden name. Women that I know were married before are listed in bold. For example, the Mary McAdams who married William Marquis stated on her marriage license that she had been married before and that her previous marriage had been dissolved by death. I do not know Mary's maiden name. In the cases that I do know the maiden name of the bride, that name given in [brackets].

See blue links for more information about a particular marriage license. See red OBIT links for the individual's obituary on the Allegheny River Family Archives page.
