I just wanted everyone to know that I have added the western states
married record index to my Idaho Connections page. The Rexburg, Idaho
Family History Center has been extracting pre-1930 marriage information
from Idaho counties. As of this writing, better than 99% of those
entries are included. Besides Idaho, the index also includes nearly

students of Ricks College, library staff, and the many people who have
volunteered their time to this project.
