Historic Tarrant County Marriage Licenses
Tarrant County Archives houses many original Tarrant County Marriage Licenses more than 100 years in age. Volunteers are working on creating an accurate database of the pre-1912 licenses, carefully cross-checking names and all information with the transcribed record books. Copies of marriage licenses are available through the Tarrant County Vital Statistics Department (817-884-1550) for all years. Unfortunately, County records dating prior to March 29, 1876, were destroyed in a courthouse fire, so few records survive from prior to that date.
