Iredell County, Marriage Register 1854-1964
Compiled by Russell C. Black Jr., 2006
The following indexed materials were gathered and compiled from Iredell County, N. C. Marriage Register, 1851-1964, Microfilms rolls C.054.60015, C.054.60016 and C.054.60017 - Males. After the male register was compiled, a bride register was generated by alphabetizing the brides names from the male register. Information from the register includes the groom name, bride name, age (groom/bride), race, date of marriage, official, witnesses. If date of birth is given, this appears under the person’s name. If the “race” is indicated by a -(dash), “race” is probably “white.” The names are spelled as they appear in the microfilm. Researchers are advised to consider alternate spellings.
Iredell County Marriage Index

The following index will have some overlapping information with the Russell C. Black Jr. index but will also provide additional source information for marriage records. Iredell County marriage records prior to 1851 were destroyed in a fire. Although official marriage records are not available, announcements were still made to local newspapers, families documented marriages in family Bibles, and the Iredell County Genealogical Society compiled information over the years on these records. This index includes all of the this information and more. The information in this index is specific to Iredell County and individuals connected to Iredell County and is always growing and changing. For additional information and access to microfilm, visit the Local History room of the library.
