I can obtain copies of Cook County marriage licenses, 1871-1916, at the local Family History Center on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Turnaround time is usually 0-3 days, depending on when you submit your request.
- The early Cook County marriage licenses DO NOT include parent names or birth information and no applications with that information are available.
- If you’d like me to locate the church record if the license indicates a Catholic marriage, please submit a request for two records (just change the count at the bottom of the form) and I’ll include that in the search. You will need to authorize payment for $12 but I will discount it when I complete the request and the total cost will be $8.50.
- If I’m not able to find the record(s) you need (it’s rare, but it happens), there will be no charge.
