FHL or LDS Family History Center Film available to order near you.  These films are actual images of the ledger pages kept at  the county seat.

Important Note: It is best to check all the sources available. While transcribing the county records I have noted that the state has records the county does not have and the county has records the state does not have. Remember that the county records are also turned into the state so there may be more transcriptions errors. The county received theirs from the township, ministers, judges and family members, so there may be errors in their records also. The original marriage record at townships, ministers, judges, etc. are very hard to obtain as many have been lost in various ways over time.
