Tarrant County Archives houses many original Tarrant County Marriage Licenses more than 100 years in age. Volunteers are working on creating an accurate database of the pre-1912 licenses, carefully cross-checking names and all information with the transcribed record books. Copies of marriage licenses are available through the Tarrant County Vital Statistics Department (817-884-1550) for all years. Unfortunately, County records dating prior to March 29, 1876, were destroyed in a courthouse fire, so few records survive from prior to that date.
