"Lost" St. Louis County {MO} Marriages

"St. Louis County Recorder's office began registering marriage licenses at the time of the separation of the City of St. Louis from St. Louis County in 1876. Some of the earliest records, which had been missing, have recently been located. These "lost records" have been transcribed by Karen Elder, the Special Services Supervisor in the St. Louis County Recorder of Deeds office," says my buddie Dave Lossos on his spectacular website, Genealogy in St. Louis.

Use the link below to access the records of more than 750 marriages, some as late as 1956, though the majority are from 1876-1888.
