The Kane County Genealogical Society (KCGS) was involved in an ongoing project with
the County Clerk's office indexing the marriages from the first one in 1836 through
the year 1906. Four books were printed from this project.
Book number one includes the nearly 6,000 marriages recorded from 1836 through 1866.
The second volume encompasses over 4600 marriages of the following decade. Until
recently, both of these publications were unavailable. The KCGS is proud to again
make these available.
The third and fourth volumes list nine thousand marriages each and cover the years
1878-1893 and 1894-1906 respectively.
Each publication includes the names of the bride and groom, marriage date and certificate
number. The books are arranged alphabetically by the groom's name and include a bride's
index. Using the license number and marriage date, copies of the original licenses
can be obtained from the County Clerk's office, P.O. Box 70, Geneva, IL 60134.
