These records include indexes and images for marriage certificates recorded by the Stevens County Auditor between 1945 and 2008. These records also include the names of people married in Stevens County from 1859 to 1947. The names were taken from Catholic Church records, newspaper articles, marriage licenses, marriage record books, marriage registers, and marriage statistics books. A record of marriage does not mean that the marriage was actually performed.
