Ohio county probate courts have kept marriage records from the date of the county's formation. There is no statewide index to marriage records before September 7, 1949. Go to the list of county probate court marriage records held at the Ohio Historical Society. If the Ohio Historical Society does not hold a county's marriage records, please contact the county's probate court. A list of county courthouse contacts is available at Ohio County Courthouse Addresses.
