County Clerk Stacey Kemp has come up with a great tool for those documenting their Collin County roots. The archive of marriage licenses, dating back 126 years, can be searched from the
Genealogy Corner. More than 8,000 licenses, dating from 1884 to 1949, have been scanned and indexed, and are now searchable online. But we went one step more: for those who'd like a copy of these licenses for a project or family album, there are three different options that are available for a small fee.
