What Are Maine Marriage Records?

Marriage Records in Penobscot County Maine

Marriage Records in Penobscot County Maine are considered public information. There are two ways to obtain this information in the County: The first is through the Department of Revenue Services (DRS). They maintain records for a plethora of information that pertains to marriages, including names, locations, officiants, and more. The second method is through the Penobscot County Clerk of Court. You can request your marriage records directly from the court without going through the DRS.

When you go through the Clerk of Court, you will be asked for certain information about the marriage license itself, any names that were used, the date, and the reason for the marriage. You will also need to provide proof of identity and where you live. After filling out this information you will be directed to the records department where you can choose which records you wish to view. If you would like to get a copy of your records directly from the court you can go to the courthouse and follow the same instructions.

Marriage Records in Penobscot County can be used for many things. If you are a genealogist looking to find old family members you can search for the marriage records and find out about any past marriages. If someone wants to remarry, they can find out if they have any previous marriages and search for that. In the case of remarriage the new spouse should be able to show proof of residency within the county in order to be considered legally married.

It is important to know what is on these records before you look them up though. As the clerk is required to keep all the information on file for each and every marriage and other legal transaction that takes place in the county. This means that the person searching the records will have to go through the courthouse to get the information. They can then go online and access the information at any time of day or night.

These marriage records are considered public record and anyone can access them. The information is not supposed to be used for commercial purposes unless permission is given by the person in question. When it is used for these purposes, you have to ask for permission from the person you are using the records for. You can only get their personal information such as name, address and phone number. The rest of the information is not supposed to be released because it may influence your decision in a way that you wouldn’t like.

These records are kept in the county where the marriage took place. That is why it is usually on the same records list with other vital records. If the person you want to look up has some other names, it should be easy to locate the records in other counties. Usually all you need to do is fill out and sign a form giving permission for the records search to be conducted on your behalf.
