How to Look Up Marriage Records Online

Walthall County, Mississippi is the seat of one of the most notoriously contentious areas of America: the county seat of Warren counties, located along the banks of the Mississippi River. Over the course of the last century, the county has gone through an array of changes, from Jim Crow laws that limited black Americans from attending certain schools, to the Loving v. Holmes case which made it legal for gay marriage in the state. Today, more than half of all the residents of Walthall County live in a household with at least one married person.

The first place you might look for marriage records in Walthall County is the vital statistics office or sometimes referred to as the city recorder’s office. These offices maintain these vital records all year-round, and they are responsible for distributing and publishing information to anyone who requests it. They will either have you look at the records yourself (which is often free), or they will provide you with a paper copy via mail, phone call or in person. In order to get a copy over the internet, you’ll have to either visit their site, which is usually easy to do, or send them an email with your request.

Once you’ve found the office, you’ll be able to start searching for marriage information by using the search bar provided on the site. You may enter information like the names of both persons involved in the wedding, the date of the ceremony, whether it was performed in the church or in a public venue, the reason for the ceremony, and the name of the officiant. You’ll also have to provide a form of payment, either via credit card or online check if you’re using a major credit card. As you search, you’ll be able to see what comes up, and this can help you prioritize your search.

If you want to get more specific information about one of the people in the record such as the location of the wedding, the names of the parents of the couple, the official’s name of the official who conducted the ceremony, or even the place where the reception took place, you’ll have to use additional sources to get that information. Marriage records aren’t typically released for free, because they are considered to be public record and therefore need to be disseminated to the general public. Therefore, you might have to pay a small fee to see what you’re after.

There are websites that have been established to make obtaining marriage records much easier, and they offer many different kinds of searches. Some of them are free, and others require a small fee. However, not all websites will give you the information that you’re looking for. In some cases, it might turn out that they don’t have anything on file at all, while in other cases you could end up being provided with records that are either outdated or corrupt. It’s really important to choose a reputable site for your online searches, or else you could waste a lot of time, money, and effort trying to get information that you don’t have.

The information that you can find in marriage records consists of names, dates of marriage, locations of marriage (if the marriage was in a state other than where you live), full names of the bride and groom, the names of any children from the union, and even the marriage license itself. Some websites will also give you an opportunity to download a certified copy of the marriage certificate, which is extremely helpful if you ever plan to remarry. These websites are designed to make obtaining marriage records as easy as possible, so don’t let anything stop you! Even if you only need to look up one name of the people involved in your search today, it could save you a world of hassle tomorrow.
