Ottawa County, OH- Marriage Records

Marriage records can be found in two different locations in Ottawa Co., OH. The two places to look are at the courthouse in Port Clinton, OH and the archives in Bowling Green.

The records come in three different forms. They are the marriage index (1840-present), marriage records(1840-present) and loose files of marriage records (1869-1913). Records at the archives on the marriage records runs to 1952, index to 1864 and the loose to 1913.

Remember the primary facts of a marriage record are the persons getting married, date and location. A often over looked portion of the record is the name of witnesses. These names can offer valuable clues to relationships. Copies of this document should be made for proof and future confirmation of facts.
