About the Project

The WPA and other volunteers produced Colorado marriage records and indexes through 1939. Then a gap exists until 1975 for current records kept at the state level. Marriage records were kept in the period from January 1940 into 1975 at Arapahoe County. The original three volumes of Arapahoe County Colorado Marriages published by CGHS cover the period from January 1940 to June 1965. The marriage records from this period are contained in this presentation. Records not yet transcribed are from June 1965 to 1975.

This collection contains the records from the three published volumes, Arapahoe County Books 19 through 42. Each of the published volumes contains a Groom and Bride Index for that volume. The series also contains a combined index that covers all three volumes and is in a somewhat different format than in the published books. There are 37,746 names contained therein.
