Hello,

It seems lately there has been several requests about researching
families in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Some specifically about the
Historical Marriage License Index which is at:

_http://probate.cuyahogacounty.us/ml/_
(http://probate.cuyahogacounty.us/ml/)

Some folks don't know that the search field will find any
person (max 100) for the beginning character(s) you enter. Even
a single character.

Secondly, there is a way to find approximately when the marriage
occurred by the volume number associated with it. We are sure
this is posted other places, but we use a copy of the table that
is at the bottom of this link:

(http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~officer/CuyOhMarIndx.html)

For instance volume 126 is for marriage >from Apr 1922 - June 1922.

Note that some of the Cuyahoga County Jewish marriages are indexed
in Ancestry.com, and often include parents names. However, since
you are limited to a minimum three character search, the other index is
sometimes useful in finding alternative spellings of a given name or
surname.

Sincerely,
David Rubin and Mrs. Rubin
