A portion of the fifty microfilm rolls pertaining to the operation of the Mississippi Freedmen's Bureau include marriage records of some of the newly freed slaves. The information provided includes names of parties, ages, and places of birth and residence. Most of the marriages recorded took place in Warren County and involved grooms who served in the United States Colored Troops.
A MDAH volunteer researched and transcribed information from 1994 and 1997 to compile a database of approximately XXX marriages.
The records are searchable by groom's last name, bride's last name and date of marriage. Please be aware that due to handwriting, spelling variations, and legibility issues, accuracy of the transcribed information cannot be guaranteed.
