Online Pennsylvanian Marriage Records
« on: Sunday 09 December 18 22:25 GMT (UK) »
Looking for marriages / marriage records from Western Pennsylvania (specifically Allegheny, Blair, and Huntingdon Counties) from the mid 1870's through 1920. I can't seem to find any on line records for these three counties during this time period.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Statewide recording of marriages did not begin until 1885.  Some jurisdictions, such as the city of Pittsburgh, began earlier.

Marriage records for all three of those counties are available on FamilySearch.org.  If you don’t find the records you’re looking for by doing a general search, you can go to Search -> Catalog and select Search by Place. Enter the name of the county in the “Place” box, click Search, and you should find the marriage dockets listed under Vital Records. You can then browse the index or dockets.

Ancestry.com has a database that has records for those counties:

All Pennsylvania, County Marriage Records, 1845-1963

Even without a subscription you can search by county for a person's name, then mouse over the "View Record" and you can see the spouse's name.  You can't see the marriage date though, without a subscription.

Get to the database by searching the card catalog with its title.
Petticrew, Pettigrew, Bedigrew, and all variants.
