How to Search Marriage Records in Kenai Peninsula Borough
If you are planning to conduct a genealogy or research on individuals who have died, then one of the places to look into is the Kenai Peninsula Borough. You can search through the vital records in Alaska in the District Court of Anchorage. There are marriage records from this region that are linked with other historical documents such as immigration papers. The information from these files will help you to find the missing links in your family tree and research on your ancestors.
The Anchorage area includes all the major counties of Kenai, AK and Skokomish, WA. You can get marriage records and death records for anybody who has died in any of the county offices of these areas. Although the information is not official in terms of state records, these files are considered part of the public domain and are made available to the general public.
Most of the information in the file is personal. The last name of the couple, their parents’ names, the names of the witnesses etc. can be requested. If there is additional information available, it will also be given. For example, if the wedding took place in another county, then you can ask for the copy of the marriage license.
Like most US states, in Alaska marriage records are not classified as being public record. This means that the courts and public access to such information are controlled by the secrecy clause. If you want to search the marriage records in Kenai Peninsula Borough, you will need to apply for a search permit. There are basically two types of permits available. One is the unrestricted search permit which is available to everybody. The second type is the limited search permit which is restricted to specific agencies and individuals.
The other issue is about the confidentiality of the information. Marriage records in Alaska are confidential and cannot be distributed outside the state. Even the location of the ceremony is not mentioned. This is also true for information like the names of the bride and groom or mother and father of the bride and groom. If this important piece of information has to be shared outside the state, then the information has to be prepared and filed under a confidential agreement.
It is important to note that in spite of the fact that the information is confidential, it can not be shared without proper authorization. The attorney general is the person who can grant permission to release the information or he can block access to it. This can be a problem if you are trying to get some documentation from another state in order to clear your own record.
