Basic Information You Need When Searching for Marriage Records

You need information when searching for marriage records. However, if you don't know all the information, an online search for vital records can help.

When searching for marriage records, you need to have some key information, especially if you are going to be using the offices that house county vital records. Some of this you may know, but if you are looking for an old record, you may not know the information. What are the key pieces of information you need when searching for marriage records?

  • The person's name. This should be obvious, but unfortunately, many people who are dishonest use aliases. Another reason why the name would be different on a marriage certificate is if the woman had been married before. She may have been going by her married name or a maiden name you do not know.
     
  • The age of the bride and groom. There are many people with similar names across the United States (for example, John Smith and Jane Jones are often common names). If you know their approximate age at the time the wedding took place, you can narrow down your search for the marriage records in county vital records.
     
  • The date of the marriage. If a person has been married multiple times, you may need to nail down the actual date of the record you need. If not you may spend a lot of time searching through marriage records.

The one piece of information you need that presents the biggest challenge is the location of the marriage. Marriage records are filed in the county where the marriage took place. If you have no clue as to where the marriage occurred, you could spend hours guessing which state, which county and which courthouse the record would be located. You could ask friends or relatives for guidance but if you want to be discreet about your search that is not a good idea.

Searching an online public records database is a discreet way to find marriage records from all over the country. While it helps if you have at least the state to list in the search engine, you can conduct a general search. This search will produce county vital records that may lead you to the information you need. All you need to do is key in what you know into the database from your computer to receive options that match the information. A public records database will contain information from all 50 states. You don't have to travel or call courthouses looking for marriage records. You can do these searches from your office or home and no one will know.

The Archives Division, The Library of Virginia, 800 East Broad Street, Richmond, Virginia 23219-1905 has copies of surviving Virginia birth and death records for the period 1853 to 1896 and marriage records prior to 1936. These records are public information and are available on microfilm for use by the public. The Library of Virginia does not have copies of birth and death records from the Office of Vital Records for public use after 1896. 

For most areas of the State, records are available for the years 1853 to 1896. Any "Marriage Bonds" prior to 1853 that are still in existence would also be in the Virginia State Library and Archives, as would war records prior to and including the Civil War, deeds, wills and other court records. Events that occurred in the portion of Virginia that is now West Virginia are recorded in the Archives of the Division of Culture and History, Capitol Complex, 1900 Kanawha Boulevard East, Charleston, West Virginia 25305-0300. With the exception of the years 1896 to 1912, the Office of Vital Records has records of births, deaths, and marriages since 1853. Vital Records has divorce records on file from 1918 to the present. There are no records prior to 1853 and there was no law for the registration of births and deaths between 1896 and June 14, 1912.
