Volunteers extracted the details in this index from microfilmed copies of church, civil, family, and other records of Minnesota marriages.

Details in the index entries vary depending on the original record, but they may include

  • name
  • age
  • marital status
  • birth date
  • birthplace
  • race
  • place of marriage
  • date of marriage
  • father’s name
  • mother’s name
  • grandparent
  • spouse’s name, birth date, birthplace, race, age, previous spouse
  • spouse’s grandparent
  • previous spouse
  • FHL film number

The FHL film number refers to a microfilm copy of the source held by the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.
