Marriage Records in Hancock County Maine

Marriage Records in Hancock County Maine

What records are kept in the State of Maine? Marriage records are kept in the office of the Clerk of court of the county where the marriage occurred. The only place they are NOT kept is the state registry. In some cases they may be kept in the county public library, but this is extremely rare.

You can find marriage records online. You do not have to go through the entire process of getting them by going to the courthouse. Instead you can look for these, save them and then print them. Many sites allow you to search by name or location. This makes it very convenient and fast.

Some of the sites are better than others. Some of them are better equipped to search across various counties or states. Others may not have access to all of the information. However, if you are looking for a record in particular that you know is available, an online site can make the search much easier than visiting your county’s records office.

The fee is nominal and is usually well worth the convenience. The fee covers the cost of having all the records from one specific state. The records include the name of the person getting married as well as the names of the two persons.

If you don’t like the idea of someone else being able to see your private records then you should consider using one of the online services. With a paid service you have access to many more records. Most records online services allow you to search based on several factors. Some of these factors include the last known residence of the one getting married, their place of birth, union licensing records and many more. It is really great being able to conduct a background check this way.

When looking at the records online, you will have to pay a small fee. This will usually be less than what it would cost to go down to the courthouse and retrieve the records. Marriage records are something that should not be underestimated. They are considered public record and should be able to be found in many places. Fortunately, this information is now available to anyone who uses the internet. Whether you are running a business or just have personal needs for obtaining marriage records in Maine, it is much easier now to get them online.
