Conservation of Marriage Licenses

An on-going part of the mission statement of the Yorktown Preservation Society is the preservation, restoration, and conservation of the historic aspects of Yorktown.  As part of this mission, YPS has provided the funding for York County to conserve marriage licenses for the period 1866 – 1876.
