"Sangamon County, Illinois Marriage Applications - March 16, 1879 thru December 31, 1881"
by Eileen Gochanour was first transcribed and published in May 1986. She has generously given me permission to post them on the Sangamon ILGenWeb page.
A special thanks to Eileen!!
Quoting Eileen in the publication:
"The following Marriage applications are in Brooken Library at the Sangamon State University (now University of IL).
Brookens Library is one of the Depositories for the IRAD (Illinois Regional Archives Depository). These applications are
#8251 through #9679. Although the date of actual Marriage is not here, it is probably safe to say that at least
90% plus actually did get married after applying for the license, and we should be able to get the marriage record from
the information here. These applications do give the ages of the groom and the bride to be, as well as the place
of residence at the time of applying for the license."
Copies of these Marriage applications can be obtained for a minimumal copy charge from:
Illinois Regional Archives Depository (IRAD )
Brookens Library, LIB 144
P. O. Box 19243,
University of Illinois at Springfield
Springfield, IL 62794
For copies of the actual Marriage (if it occurred) can be obtained for $7.00 each from:
Sangamon County Courthouse

Springfield, IL 62701
Phone: (217) 753-6600
As with any transcribed records, errors could have been made and one should obtain the original document to verify
BRIDE INDEX The page # is referred to in this index, one will have to return
to this page and click on the appropriate page. Pages do carry over into the next file, as you will note. Surnames for some of these brides are unusual, so it is important
to check variant spellings, as well as documenting with the original copy. They could have been misread.
