Dear Gayle,

In Cuyahoga County there is an Index to Marriage Applications which is organized by last names of both the bride and groom. There is one list for Females and one list for Males. I believe that the Cuyahoga County Archives has a copy of this index and can search it and send you a copy. They also have copies of the actual records through 1941, so they may be able to do the index search and record retrieval at one shot. Requests can be made by email. They have a minimum charge of $1.00 for up to 4 pages, including postage. It's .25 per page after that with postage added as necessary. They will send you a bill. Use the email address at the below web page. Tell them that you are looking for a Cuyahoga County Marriage License Application, give them the name of the female you are researching, and give them an address to which to mail the records and billing.

Here is a web page with further information:

The great part about this is that you do not need to know the groom's name, just your female ancestors maiden name!

Good Luck!
