Multnomah County Marriages

The GFO holds the original Multnomah County marriage record books dating back to the very first recorded marriage in 1855.

Over 29,600 marriages have been indexed for the 1855-1899 file; 34,486 for the 1900-1915 file; and 11,770 for the 1916-1920 file.  Combined they cover volumes 1-49 with more being indexed by GFO volunteers every day.  Volumes 50-56 & 60 have been indexed and are being proofed.  We do not have volumes 57-59 at our library.

You may search for either the groom or the bride in each PDF file.
