Kudos to the University of Kentucky and the Fayette County Clerk’s office for releasing the Colored Marriage RegisterThe years covered so far are 1866 to 1882 and 1958 to 1968. Currently you can only search through them by scanning through the books but a project is in the works to index the records. In the earlier records, sometimes the first name is not given in full, only an initial.  But in the later records, the entire name is given. These records will be a valuable aid to many folks with roots in Kentucky, in particular, Fayette County.
