6.50 cubic feet and 10 microfilm reelsSkip to Containers

These records are housed in the Utah State Archives' permanent storage room.

Scope and Content

This series contains applications submitted to the county clerk by couples seeking to obtain a marriage license. Information in the application identifies the applicants and verifies their fitness to be legally married. Information in the applications may include application number, names and addresses of the applicants, color or race, marital status, places and dates of birth, occupation, names, birthplaces, and nationalities of mothers; statements that applicants are free from venereal disease or chronic epilepsy; maiden name of female (if previously married); signatures of applicants; consent of parent or guardian if either applicant is a minor; signatures of witnesses and county clerk; and date application was filed.

The type and amount of data recorded varied over time. The earliest applications are a much simpler three part form. The form includes the sworn and signed affidavit of the groom that he is eligible to marry and notes his name, residence, and age; bride's name, residence and age; and clerk's signature and date. The second part is the bride's sworn and signed affidavit recording her name and age along with the clerk's signature and date. The third part is for the consent of the parent or guardian to marriage of a minor giving that person's name, relationship, signature, date, and signatures of witnesses.

Arrangement

Numerical, with numbers assigned chronologically by application date.
