If you find yourself with a list of names, just type those names into a search engine like Google and there you have it.

Once you find the record that you want, it’s important that you look it over very carefully.

You want to make sure that the information on the certificate and those records is correct. Just because it’s from Washington County, doesn’t mean that the information is verified and the county is not responsible for verifying the information that you find on marriage records.

Another important step you will want to take when searching for these records is to ask the County where you find the marriage certificate to see if they have it or if there is another source. You should try to get a copy of this record from either the Department of Records or from the county where you find the marriage. Both of these sources will have the information you are after and can provide you with a verifiable third party source of information. But it’s still a good idea to ask for this information if you are unsure and then you have the peace of mind knowing that the information is available.
