Tazewell County
Marriage License Copies
1898 - 1938





Tazewell County Genealogical & Historical Society (TCGHS) has scanned the original returned 1898-1938 marriage licenses which were in storage at the Tazewell County courthouse. 

Some of the licenses had extra papers dealing with the marriage – usually permission signed by the parents or guardians for underage children to marry. Copies of these additional papers will be included with the license at no additional charge.

These marriage licenses have been indexed and published in four volumes.  They can be consulted at our library or can be purchased.

Orders may be placed at the Society's library, through the mail, or online using the form below.  Your copies may be picked up at the library or will be emailed/mailed to you for no extra charge.  Your order must be paid for before we create the copies.  Online orders will have a 45¢ handling fee per marriage to offset the PayPal fees we are charged.  (If you order more than a few certificates in the same order, we will refund excess handling back to you.)
