MARRIAGE RECORDS


 

A Marriage Record is a certified or exemplified copy (used for international purposes) of a Marriage Application or Duplicate Portion of the Marriage License. There are many reasons why a person may wish to obtain a Marriage Record and our office is prepared to accommodate requests.

To obtain a Marriage Record, please send us a letter containing 1) the names that the parties used when they applied for a license, 2) the date of the marriage, 3) a self addressed stamped envelope.

In addition, you must send in two checks. The first for $15.00, made out to "The Clerk of Orphans' Court". This is to pay for the research. The second check is to be for either $25.00 if you are ordering a Certified Copy or $50.00 if you are ordering an Exemplified Copy. Both checks should be made payable to "The Clerk of Orphans' Court."

If you need to obtain Marriage Records, we have expedited services available. If you have any questions, please call.
