Welcome to the Joiner Marriage Index
This is Paul Joiner's definitive genealogical resource to search for marriage records from parish registers in England and Wales from before 1837, the year of the first Civil Registration Act and when marriage certificates were formally introduced.
Online there are now 2,632,693 hand verified marriage records from 4,149 parishes in 34 counties in England and Wales, making the Joiner Marriage Index the most accurate and complete online search facility for marriage records from parish registers. It is the fruit of more than 40 years of painstaking research and data collation by Paul Joiner. The number of marriage records is always increasing as data is transferred from our offline records. The initial process is free allowing a lot of information to be gleaned before the full details are accessed via a payment through PayPal. Please note that this is an index of the marriage records from parish registers and no marriage certificates are included with the search results. An email backup follows with a password to view the marriage records search in the results section of the Joiner Marriage Index.
The cost of a search begins at £2.29 for a single marriage record and increases by £0.10 per marriage record up to a maximum of £52.19 for 500 marriage records. For searches of more than 500 marriage records please contact us for a more personal touch.
