The Marriage Records Index 1873—1883 is a list of marriage records originally published in the Livingston Republican newspaper between 1873 and 1883. This index was made from information published in the Detroit Society for Genealogical Research Magazine (Volume 52:4; Summer, 1989; pp. 147-150; Volume 53:1; Fall, 1989; pp. 17-20; Volume 53:2; Winter, 1990; pp. 65-68; and Volume 53:3; Spring, 1990; pp. 113-116). The magazine did not reproduce the actual marriage records but printed abstracts of the marriage records as compiled by the Harriette M. Wheeler of Grosse Pointe, Michigan. Brighton District Library is grateful to the Detroit Society for Genealogical Research for granting permission for this information to be made available via this index. Brighton District Library does not own either print or microfilm of the original papers from which these abstracts were made but is providing this index as a service to researchers.
