For example, Crawford County has marriage records that begin in 1816. The marriage records are listed in the Family History Library FamilySearch Catalog under the name of the county. Copies are also available at the Wisconsin Historical Society and its area research centers. Beginning about 1852, marriage records generally give the names of the parents of the bride and groom. By 1881 the form asked for the parents' places of birth.
