WorldVitalRecords.com - Arapahoe County, Colorado Marriages, 1861-1868
This index was compiled from a collection consisting of unbound handwritten marriage certificates from Arapahoe County during Colorado's Territorial period. The certificates generally contain the names of the bride and groom, their residence, name of the officiator/minister, names of witnesses, certificate number and the date of marriage. The index is not an exhaustive list of early Arapahoe County marriages. The recording of marriages in Colorado with the county Clerk and Recorder was not required until 1881. Many people still registered with the Clerk's Office, and microfilmed copies of some of these early books are located in the State Archives.
