Marriage Records in Chattahoochee County Georgia

Marriage Records in Chattahoochee County Georgia

In Georgia, marriage records are kept in the offices of the county where the wedding took place. These vital records are then transcribed and entered electronically in the Marriage Records of Georgia Registry. These records are then supplied to any person who needs them for some purpose related to legal proceedings. The word ‘records’ is actually misleading as it does not mean that these records are stored in a single file or folders but rather they are stored in numerous individual files. This means that one cannot request a copy of marriage from the office of the county where the marriage was performed but can request it from the county where the marriage took place.

Every county in Georgia has its own Marriage Records and they are available on request through the county offices. This is usually free of cost and can be obtained through any of the offices. However, there are certain requisites that need to be fulfilled for the request to be approved by the office. If the marriage was listed in the newspaper then the request needs to be made there also.

The marriage records in Georgia can also be obtained from some of the non-government agencies. For instance, some of the financial institutions and universities maintain their own records on their website. The information is not only limited to marriage but also includes other details of individuals like the birth details, date of birth, place of birth, mother’s maiden name etc. The online sites may charge some money for the information.

There are several free sources of information. The main public record services which are available on the internet are the free marriage record search sites. On such sites, you will get all the information of the person who you are looking for. However, since these sites are run commercially, you may not get the information for free. The information is available for free because they have to pay for the information.

There are many paid services as well, which can help you get your desired information without any problem. The paid sites on the other hand charge money for accessing the marriage records. Before you make a choice of the paid or the free sites, it is very important to know about the privacy policy of the website. You must read the terms and conditions to know what kind of information you will get. The free services may also provide you with marriage information; however, you need to expect a little inconvenience.

Marriage records in Georgia are maintained and updated manually. There are several reasons for this manual updating. The most important reason is so that all the records are accurate and the next time you perform a search, you would get the correct information about the person you are looking for. The county where the marriage took place might not be present in the computer database. Hence, manual updating is a must for all the county marriage records in Georgia.
