FamilySearch puts New Brunswick marriage records online 1789-1950
Posted March 13, 2015
By Rick Roberts,

If you researching New Brunswick families, and are interested in finding historic New Brunswick marriage records online at no cost, FamilySearch has the answer.

FamilySearch announced today that their website now includes 303,599 indexed New Brunswick marriage records from 1789-1950, with 255,805 digital images of related documents.

The following from the FamilySearch website indicates that there are more records to be added to the collection, and what information you can expect to find. I suspect the latter varies by record source and time period:
  • "When complete, the collections will contain marriage records from New Brunswick, including:

    • Marriage Registers 1789-1889
    • Marriage Certificates 1887-1950
    • Delayed Registration of Marriages 1920-1945
    • Returns of Marriages 1887-1950

  • Records generally contain the following information:
    • Date and place of marriage
    • Groom's full name
    • Groom's age, marital status, occupation and residence
    • Groom's place of birth
    • Groom's religious denomination
    • Groom's literacy
    • Name of groom's father's and birth place
    • Maiden name of groom's mother and birth place
    • Bride's full name
    • Bride's age, marital status, occupation and residence
    • Bride's place of birth
    • Bride's religious denomination
    • Bride's literacy
    • Name of bride's father and birth place
    • Maiden name of bride's mother and birth place
    • Names of witnesses"
FamilySearch provides two methods to access records:


Records available using the Browse option are: Search:

Records available using the Search option are: I did a simple search using just the name of the groom. It is an uncommon surname so I didn't think that I needed to refine the search with other available particulars such as birth, parents, spouse name etc. Here's what the New Brunswick Provincial Marriages 1789-1950 search screen looks like:

There are 4 records listed that involved a John Devlin. This is a snippet of the search results screen for the one I was searching for:

Clicking on John Devlins name provided the following information:

FamilySearch provides options to print, or download the document (jpg), or attach it to a family tree you are working on the FamilySearch website, or add it to your FamilySearch 'Source Box'.
