This project was indexed in partnership with the Arkansas Genealogical Society.
There are three types of marriage records:
- Marriage books are usually large, bound volumes, especially those with printed columns. Entries were made chronologically. Some volumes, especially those for earlier years, were written in paragraph format, often with two or three marriages on each page. When printed pages were introduced later, marriages were recorded in columns, allowing for many entries per page.
- Marriage licenses may be in paragraph format or printed forms.
- Marriage returns are usually in paragraph format. See Wiki FamilySearch.
