All Laramie County marriage records from 1868 are located in the Laramie County Clerk's office, as well as the Wyoming State Archives, and the Genealogy Department at the Laramie County Library. An alpha Bride and Groom list for marriage licenses issued from 1868 to 1906 is located here.


The Laramie County Library System has copies of obituaries published in Laramie County newspapers beginning in 1950.   The Wyoming State Archives has microfilm of various Wyoming local newspapers dating back to 1868. 


This website now contains obituaries and, for some years, information relating to births, marriages, and anniversaries that were published in the major newspapers of Laramie County.  Further information is here.
