Some people choose to do this by going to the local county clerk office where they can then fill out a request for the information.

Most of the time when performing a search for information regarding marriage licenses or marriage records that are filed in a county other than the one that you are living in, there will be some sort of fee that is required. Sometimes the fee is nominal, other times it may be quite a bit more. Depending on the information that you are searching for, you may be able to find some information for free, and others will require a membership in order to obtain the information that you are seeking. When deciding whether or not to pay for any information that you receive, it is important to weigh the cost versus the benefit that you will receive by having the information. You also want to make sure that you are getting accurate information and the right information in the first place.

Once you have determined whether or not you want to pay for the records that you need, you are ready to start your search. One of the first things that you should do is pull up a copy of the vital record database from the county where you are conducting your search. This will list all of the marriage licenses that have been issued in the past five years or so. It will also list the names of the couple, their parents and witnesses.

If you have any additional information such as the reason for the wedding or the date of the event, then you will want to continue your search online. There is a wealth of information that is available to you online and in many cases you can obtain it for free. Some of it may be considered public record, while some of it may not be. Be sure to know exactly what information you are searching for before you begin your search.
