I can obtain copies of Cook County marriage licenses, 1871-1916, at the local Family History Center on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, Thursday during the day, and on Saturdays which means turnaround time varies from same day to three 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.
