Beaver Co., PA Marriages 1830 – 1873$14.00
Beaver Co., PA Marriages 1830 – 1873 – by Mark Welchley
Early marriage records in Beaver County and all of Western Pennsylvania are difficult to obtain. Except for a brief period in the early 1850’s, county records were not kept until 1885. Many church and magistrate records have been lost or destroyed. Newspapers, then, may preserve the only surviving record of some marriages.
The primary newspaper from the early period of Beaver County was the Beaver Argus. Marriage notices were extracted from this paper and a few scattered issues of other papers. Be advised that it is unlikely that this book represents a complete record of all marriages during this period. Many couples may not have elected to place an announcement in the newspaper of placed it in another papers.

Beaver County, Pennsylvania 1890 Property Tax Records – INDEX
This index was abstracted from Beaver County Pennsylvania 1890 property tax records. Not all tax records for all townships and boroughs have survived but this is the most complete compilation available. The Beaver County Genealogical Society hopes that this will be used as a substitute for the 1890 census, which was lost to fire at the National Archives. Obviously, this index will only include those persons who owned property. The columns include: Surname, Given name, Township or Borough, and Page.
