This is not the only option for locating marriage records in Covington County. There are many places around the metropolitan area that will give you the information you need. If you have a computer, you can easily search their databases for information. However, this method is often unreliable. The information is not stored electronically and many times there is no way to retrieve it. It is also worth noting that most county courthouses own these records and if they do not you will have to pay to get them.

Many people are reluctant to use an online site due to fears of safety. In reality, the chances of having your searches approved are quite small. There have been few documented cases of hackers stealing information from county sites. Each record will be verified by hand and any information found to be incorrect will be quickly corrected.

When you need to find marriage records in Covington County, you will likely use a paid service. Many paid services will give you a more complete report. They will also allow you to search for more than one record. This allows you to verify all the details that you have found about the couple including their names, where they got married and when, as well as information on their parents and witnesses.

Once you have found the marriage records you require, they will usually be sent to your home or office in a Zip code or area code. This makes searching quick and easy. You will be provided with the name of the record holder, their birth date, the place of birth, the marriage license number and the marriage date. The fee is usually not very much, as they offer a lot of information for such a small amount. This should not dissuade people however from using them as they can be very useful in certain circumstances.

Marriage records are something you can research yourself without much trouble. You could also use other sources such as genealogy websites and the white pages. However, if you need a legal record then it is usually best to head to county hall in your county. If the person you are searching for has lived in another county before you, it may be worth paying a small fee to have this information as it is legal in this state to obtain records in other states.
