Comanche County

It is cost prohibitive for me to order copies of the marriage records from Comanche County, Texas. The county charges $7.00 per certificate (certified). The county's only option is a certified copy and the cost is the same whether you order by mail or visit in person. Unfortunately these records have not been filmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah; I could find no record of any microfilm existing for these records. Comanche County, Texas records are in the process of being included in the films of the Genealogical Society of Utah. Have not checked on the status. Marriage records for Comanche County, Texas are not yet in the Family History Library catalog as of 19 May 2010.

Need to order Comanche County Marriages, 1904-1920 by Margaret Waring through interlibrary loan. Book is out of print.
