Index to Marriages of Floyd County, Virginia 1831-1940 (and few others too)

co-project by “ole Paul”, Rena Worthen & BarbR

This project started for me, BarbR, back in the early 2000s. I had transcriptions & indexes of Floyd Co., VA marriages 1831-1860 but nothing after. “ole Paul” of the original Floyd Co. News List knew I was interest in marriages beyond 1860 so, living in Floyd, so we made an arrangement where I would fund the project & he would do the footwork – make copies of the Floyd Co., VA Marriage Register – Male Index & send them to me in Wisconsin. By 2005 I had the completed index posted on my site, Families of Floyd Co., VA but that site was taken off line when USGenWeb (rootsweb) did a major overhaul.

In more recent years, Rena began downloading images of the actual marriage documents from the Library of Virginia Microfilm. This took her over 5 years! She then sent all these to me to put on this, the new VA Floyd rootsweb site, in the fall of 2018. I began linking those images to my original index. Some of those early documents are very hard to read but with the male index from the Floyd Co. court house I was able to piece it together with some confidence in its accuracy. Plus, for what whatever reason, some images did not get scanned or at least they didn’t make it to Wisconsin, so without this male index, I would have missed these too. But WOW! What a treasure of information these documents provide! Definitely worth the effort!

Re other county marriages: This whole project is in one database. I could have sorted out just the Floyd Co., marriages for posting but chose not to because every marriage posted has a connection to Floyd Co., VA & I find it useful in my own research to have everything in one place. “It is what it is”

Other information regarding layout:

Sorted by surname spelling as I feel most useful. Names that sound similar are grouped together.

Given names as I have found in working with Families of Floyd Co., VA so this may change as I gather more information.

Females are indexed by their maiden name & if I know if they are divorced or widowed, I’m indexing the name they are marrying by & their maiden name. This is something I’m adding as I link the image.

I have transcribed a few marriages 1940 & after, but they will not be posted here. Contact BarbR if interested in a transcription.

Update from BarbR:
