Bells have always rung for marriage in the Platte Valley

Columbus Bell Towers
Marriages have been indexed in 26 volumes, covering from July 1858 through November 1970 by our Kin Seekers group -- and more are on the way! If you want to search for a name(s) in a particular volume, you may go to the Platte County Vital Records and search by soundex. There is no charge for research at this site as this is part of the Platte Co. NEGenWeb Project.

If you know which volume you want you can write directly to "Publications Chair Person, % 100th
Meridan Muesum, PO Box 325, Cozad, NE  69130 for purchase of the volumne(s).

You may also contact Platte Valley Kin Seekers and they can check if the actual newspaper announcement has been saved in their library or they can check old newspapers that have access to for these articles.   Clippings for many weddings over the last several years to present that have been published in the local newspaper have also been saved and indexed in their library for this purpose. Copies of these can be requested and the cost is $5.00 for each copy that will be mailed to you or you can request that they be emailed directly to you.  Besides the marriages, articles on anniversary celebrations have also been clipped for researcher's information.

A current project that the Kin Seekers are working on may give inquirers from the Colfax County area a chance to have copies of marriage records from the Schuyler paper.
