Transcription of Whitley County Marriage Records began in the spring of 2002. Several of the books had been transcribed and published about thirty years ago but they did not encompass all of the early years. It was decided to do a new reading of the records and to do them in phases, this being the first phase, which includes the First Book through Book Seven.

Every effort was made to obtain accurate readings, but, as the legibility of the clerk's writing varied considerably, from record to record and sometimes even within the same record, there is the possibility of misinterpretation. Be sure to check for variations in spelling. Names were transcribed "as they were recorded" without any attempt to "correct" them. Also, within one marriage record the names of the bride and groom were written three times... when the license was issued, upon return of the license, and in the certification by the person who performed the marriage ceremony. Where more than one surname was entered or if the surname was spelled a different way the surname is written with a slash, such as Alles/Allis. If there was a problem with interpretation it will be shown as Alles (Allis ?).

The marriage records were transcribed by one person, verified by another, and any discrepancies were checked by yet a third person. It is through the efforts of Beverly Henley, Betty Grable, Becky Wiseman, and Jeanette Brown that these records are now available on the internet.
