Marriage applications for Richmond County, Georgia?
« on: Saturday 27 April 19 01:32 BST (UK) »
Is anyone aware of the location of marriage applications for Richmond County, Georgia, ca. 1890?

The licenses and certificates are online at Ancestry (etc.) and I've already found the one I need, but am wondering if there was a separate application filled out previously which might have more biographical information.

Possible locations? Should I just contact the Richmond County court?

Maybe this will stir up some interest in your query--

The only extensive marriage application I've found is that of NYC.  Most I've run across only list the bride and groom who declare that they are free to marry and that they are old enough to marry.

Thank you so much for that context. I appreciate it! Sounds like there's unlikely to be an application for the 1890s, then.

I'll be bookmarking that page.
