NOTE : Marriage Books "B" and "E" are missing from the Lauderdale County, Alabama Probate Judge's record room. Although the WPA listings are known to contain errors, it is the only source we have for marriages during these years. All of the marriage books will contain both white and black marriages. Lauderdale County did not have then, or later, a separate book for recording black marriages and the race of a couple applying for a license was seldom indicated. A copy of the WPA marriages may be obtained from the Alabama State Archives in Montgomery, Alabama.  Be sure to check all possible spelling variations of the name you are researching.
