Where To Search For Marriage Records

When a marriage occurs, the marriage license is issued and the wedding records are filed with the local recorder of court. All marriage licenses in Georgia are public records and can be obtained from the Georgia Vital Records Registry (GIR). Marriage records in Henry County are not typically available on the Internet, because the county does not maintain a centralized online records database. Because of this, all requests must be made via mail. The time it takes to obtain marriage records in Henry County varies depending on the request.

If you are looking for marriage records in Henry County, you can visit the county’s Public Health Office. This office maintains a directory of all of the marriages that have been performed in Henry County over the years. Marriage records are retained in the Public Health Office for approximately ten years. For some of the records, it may be possible for someone to apply for an application for records retrieval. This process may take up to one year to complete. Once the records are located and processed, they will then be placed in the directory.

If you are interested in obtaining marriage records via the Internet, the process is very similar to the mail-in-form. You will need to fill out the Request For Information form. You will be given the opportunity to enter in some basic information about yourself. To receive a response, you may be required to fax or mail in additional information such as your Social Security number, date of birth and other vital statistics.

After you submit your information, you may receive a request for a proof of age. If you do not possess an identification card, you may still be able to serve as proof of age. Marriage records are kept in the Public Health Office’s index database. It may take up to a month for the index to be updated. If there are problems with the index, the entire search may be delayed.

You may also want to look into the option to use the Internet to obtain the records online. By going this route, you will get a variety of results. The first thing that you will notice is that you are not limited to just one record. In addition to that, the information that you will obtain will be delivered electronically. The only drawback to using this option is that you may have to wait up to three months for the records to be delivered to your computer.

There are other options available. If you are working with the county office and need to conduct a record search, you can get assistance from the courthouses in the area. They may also be able to provide you with some marriage records. The information is most valuable if it comes from a third-party source.
