 Real Property With Mapping
 Civil Court
 Marriage License Search
 Estate Search

I prefer using this site of the e-sources:

As an example I search the surname Byerly using the first link, then clicking on marriage.
I come up with 108 marriages.

Westmoreland County Marriage 1885 - present: e-Search

Although you may find some of the marriages on familysearch.org

Pennsylvania, County Marriages, 1885-1950

Pennsylvania, Marriages, 1709-1940

I will admit, you may find more marriages listed on the Westmoreland site than are on familysearch in regards to Westmoreland County. Several of the marriage records I was researching were listed on the Westmoreland site, and were not even listed on familysearch.org.

Give it a try, the Westmoreland site will also provide newer marriages after 1950. If you know the surnames in your tree, it is well worth the effort.
