The following index will have some overlapping information with the Russell C. Black Jr. index but will also provide additional source information for marriage records. Iredell County marriage records prior to 1851 were destroyed in a fire. Although official marriage records are not available, announcements were still made to local newspapers, families documented marriages in family Bibles, and the Iredell County Genealogical Society compiled information over the years on these records. This index includes all of the this information and more. The information in this index is specific to Iredell County and individuals connected to Iredell County and is always growing and changing. For additional information and access to microfilm, visit the Local History room of the library.
