County Marriages On FamilySearch

For some states, FamilySearch has indexes to county marriage records that link to images. In some cases, a search for an ancestor may turn up several "marriages." They may all be the same couple and the entries could be referring to different documents and records that were created as a part of the marriage process. These could included:
  • Marriage bond
  • Marriage license
  • Marriage register
It doesn't mean there were multiple marriages--just different parts of the "record."
