Where Can I Find Out Information About My Marriage?

Marriage Records in Butler County Kentucky

If you have ever had the need to locate a person’s marriage records, but you are unfamiliar with the place to find these records, you are not alone. There are numerous places online that offer free access to public marriage records, however, there is usually little information provided about the records themselves. Many times there will be no names given or even just very general descriptions of the couple and their relationship. These sites can be useful, however they should not be relied upon as the sole source for locating vital records of marriages in Butler County.

In Kentucky, marriage records are kept by the county where the ceremony was performed. This information is kept in its own record office, known as the county recorder’s office. The county recorder’s office will either use a computerized system, print a hard copy of the records, or both. Sometimes the physical marriage records can be located more easily, but this is not always the case. It will depend on how difficult it is to get the information that you are looking for.

Most county record offices will require that you fill out some basic information, such as your full name, address, social security number, and where you have lived for the last five year. This information is used to obtain as much specific information as possible about you and your wife or husband. Some places may ask for further information prior to giving you this information, but most places that provide marriage records do not require any additional information prior to giving you this information.

The best source for locating marriage records in Butler County is online. You will want to visit the official county website of your county, and then request the information from there. Every county has an official website, and it should be fairly easy to find one that has marriage records. However, if you cannot find one, you should not give up hope. There are many other online websites that will offer you marriage information; however, you should make sure that they are reputable before you give them your information. There are many people who have been scammed by several of these sites.

Marriage records are considered public information; therefore, anyone can access them. However, if you are not getting the information that you think you are getting from the record, you should not hesitate to contact the person whose records you are requesting. If you are having trouble obtaining information from the County Clerk’s Office, you may also have some luck with contacting their offices directly. To be safe, you should try calling the office and speaking to a person who can tell you what your options are.

Marriage records are public information, and they are constantly being updated. Therefore, you may never be able to find out the actual date of your marriage if it has been many years since it happened. This is because marriage information is considered private, and it is not listed in a public record. Marriage licenses are only listed when they have been officially processed. It will take many years for marriage records to be scanned in and added to the Internet.
