The information listed below is in the order that the certificates appear on microfilm. The dates listed are the date of the actual marriage. If there was no return to indicate that the ceremony took place, then the date listed is that of the license with the notation of ?no return? or ?not solemnized?. I have tried to include as much information from these documents as I could. You will find the groom and bride as well as the location of the marriage if given and the names of those posting the bond. When permission was required, that information is also included.
