INDEX OF MARRIAGES BY BRIDE

The State of Georgia has provided a wonderful service by putting MARRIAGE BOOKS ON LINE.  These are located in the Virtual Vault at: http://content.sos.state.ga.us/cdm4/countyfilm.php

In the section "Search the Marriage Records from Microfilm" at the bottom of the page under "County", type in Carroll then click search.  This will provide a list the Marriage Books and the years each book covers.  Select the years you wish to peruse.  On the left side of the page,  select " +Index" and select the first letter of the surname you wish to research. 

After checking a few of the Miscellaneous Marriage Records, there are some that do not appear in the index of Grooms/index of Brides.
I have no explanation other than the license was not filed properly or when the records were transcribed they were overlooked.  If you do not find a record that you know should be there, I suggest you contact the Carroll Co. Probate Court Office.  The only accurate record is the original record.  You may obtain a copy of a license from them for a fee.
