Free Marriage Records in Plymouth County Massachusetts

A copy of marriage records is very important in a variety of circumstances, particularly if the couple is not related by blood and does not have a living trust. Also such records are needed in cases of genealogy. If you are wondering about your family history, these records can help you understand where your roots come from and how they progressed to where they are today. It is also useful for background research as well as finding out more about people that you may have a great amount of doubt about, such as new neighbours. In the United States, marriage records in the state are held by the Vital Records Office in each county or city, however they are not connected and linked like the federal or state records.

Marriage records are classified according to the name and the location where the marriage took place. This is usually indicated on the Certificate of Marriage, which is a legal record that is filed with the courts. The information includes the names of all the couple, their parents and witnesses. The location can also be indicated on the record if it was in a church, on a street or any other location. Most states do not allow the records to be viewed online.

Many of the states in the US require a certain level of information to be provided to them when requesting the records. Besides the names and the location, the state will want the Social Security number of both partners. Usually this is not required, but it is helpful for some research purposes. There are times when only a name is required, and sometimes just a state is needed. For example, in some religious sects, only the priest and the bridegroom are mentioned on the marriage license, and sometimes only the bridegroom’s father is required.

The information given is also often highly inaccurate and sometimes even contains typographical errors. For example, many of the marriage records do not mention the name of the groom nor the bride, they just list their current address. And the official definition of marriage does not state the man’s name nor the woman’s. Sometimes the names of the witnesses are wrongly stated, or the person listed as the witness is not really a witness at all. Some of the records are incomplete because they are older than today, and for that reason they cannot be accessed online.

Free marriage records are available from some websites, but you must be very careful about these records. You should check the sources very carefully and try to find out if there is any other information available, before trusting the records found on the website. For example, the records of someone who was born in Plymouth County may not give much information, because it is more common to find in other counties. Such records are called vital records and you have to get this information from your local County Administration Office. Marriage records are held at the county level, and you need to contact the office that holds them.

It is important to remember that searching these records online requires caution, as there are many fraudulent sites offering free services. You must read the disclaimer carefully and make sure that there are no additional charges for any records you obtain. There are also public record search services that offer to provide you with all the information you need for free, but they require you to pay a fee for this service.
