in Glynn County from it's earliest record until 1898 are indexed in full here. If
you do not see it listed, it was not recorded in Glynn County.
THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT DID NOT HAPPEN HERE; just that it wasn't RECORDED at
our court house.
The listings are by grooms and
brides combined and include the date the license was issued, the date the
marriage was performed, who performed the marriage, parents if known, followed by the book and
page number, then a section for notes about the license, if any.
The listing of
parents is purely speculative based on family history research done by myself
by no means should you assume that the parents were listed on the
The book and page listings for the
licenses are noted as A-102 for example. In the case of the separated
books, they will be listed as the book was titled. For example "Book D
Colored Marriages" will be noted as D-col-102. So please do not take
offense, this was not my doing. For some reason Glynn County started
separating them at book D, then combining them again several books later.
So there are Books D and E for white people as well.
Of course there are probably
numerous mistakes, I'm only human. Many "white" marriages were recorded in
the "colored" books and vice versa, perhaps the clerk's idea of suggesting how
stupid it was to separate them. There again, please do not get offended if

I am working on combining my index
with one compiled by Ruth N. Vicent and her sister-in-law, the late
Sara R. Cassidy. All marriages after Book C Glynn County and those
from all other counties, were compiled by them and therefore I can not answer
questions about the information. Ruth and Sara did not make
a true transcription, part of their method was to list people by their full
names as they knew them and not by what was on the certificate; so do not assume
that the name you see in the index was as it was found on the actual license.
Under the "Miscellaneous Marriage
License Images" you will find images for either an actual certificate, or for
the page in the marriage books.
