Note from the webmaster:  I am only including the Lamar County Marriages and Divorces transcribed by Jim & Janelle Shepherd (so the search engine will pick them up on this site) but you can see all the other miscellaneous marriages they have transcribed from many, many surrounding counties on the Misc. Marriages page at the NW AL Territory Website.  Thanks so much, Jim & Janelle!
