This collection is part of a larger body of work that will be published on Findmypast over time. It is important to note that this may not be the only place to find marriages—and there may be records included that are not marriages—in this material from the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, rather these were the records that we were able to identify as largely composed of marriages.

To improve your chances of finding your ancestor in this collection, start your search broadly: search for your ancestor’s name first without any other search criteria.
If you need to narrow the search results, edit your search to include a marriage year or place.
If you know your ancestor’s spouse’s name, you can also include that in your search criteria as you refine your search.
As you search for a name, keep in mind that sometimes only the first initial of a given name was recorded. If you are having difficulty finding your ancestor, try searching by the first initial of their given name. For example, if your ancestor was named John Smith, search for J Smith.
