Finding United States Marriage Records

About United States Marriage Records

  • Most marriages are recorded on the county level. Most counties began recording marriages when the county was formed.
  • Marriages recorded by state-level agencies vary widely by date and availability.
   How to Find A Marriage Record

When searching for a marriage record ask yourself the following questions:

--Are records available for the dates when I would expect my ancestor to be getting married?
--Is the database complete? Does it include all counties in the state?
--Is the database an index only? Will I need to order a film to see the original marriage record?
--Does the database contain images to the records which I can see online?
--Have I looked beyond the marriage date and names of the bride and groom for more family information that the record may contain?
--Does a different type of marriage record from the same county contain additional information about my family?
