Fulton County- Marraige Records

The looming issue when always doing research in Fulton County is the fire in the courthouse in 1864 and the distribution of early records. These two factors also come into play when researching marriage records in this county.

Marriage records tend to be some of the better kept records in any county. Fulton County is no exception and the records can be located in several different locations. The primary source for certified copies would of course be at the County court house in Wauseon. Two other locations have microfilmed copies of the records as well. They are the community library in Archbold and the archives in Bowling Green. The records at the library run from 1864-1925 and June 10, 1927 - July 21, 1944. At the archives the records run from 1864-1956. Prior to 1864 the records were destroyed in the fire. Prior to 1850 when the county was formed be sure to check Henry, Lucas and Williams counties in Ohio. The records also may be found in Michigan to the north.

I will be covering Land Records in the county.

I thought your readers might find useful our free report, “Marriage & Divorce Records, USA,” which compiles links to virtually every free government website which can be used to check out someone’s marital status. The report is available at
