Marriages in the Nauvoo Region 1839-1845
The database contains records of early marriages in the greater Nauvoo area. In the database, find names, birth dates, and marriage dates. The names of the individuals performing the marriage ceremonies are also included.
Listen to Susan Black talk about the database. LISTEN Note from compiler: The purpose of this study was to (1) identify early saints marrying in the Nauvoo region from 1839-1845 who had not received their temple ordinances, and (2) complete the temple work for these saints. Unfortunately, as I identified each saint, I found that some of the statistical information recorded by the saints and their posterity was inaccurate, conflicting, or incomplete. Where possible, research was done to alleviate this problem. I acknowledge my respect and admiration for the saints marrying in the Nauvoo region from 1839-1845. A knowledge of their sacrifice, devotion, and contribution to the kingdom of God has enriched my life.
Compiled by Susan Easton Black I acknowledge my deep appreciation to Lyndon W. Cook for his book Civil Marriages in Nauvoo and some outlying areas (1839-1845), with statistics gathered from Times and Seasons, The Wasp, Nauvoo Neighbor, and "A Record of Marriages in the City of Nauvoo," located at the Historical Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
