How to Search Marriage Records

If you are in search of the marriage records of one of the citizens of Nebraska then you have come to the right place. Nebraska is one of the most populated states in the United States and holds many vital records pertaining to marriages, divorce, deaths, birth, adoption and cemetery matters. These records are maintained by the Nebraska State Vital Records Registry, which is under the Department of Health. You can get information about marriage from the above sources at no cost.

The first step is to find out the Vital Records Registry. This can be done by contacting the county where you were born or grew up. From the contact details you will be able to get in touch with the registry and obtain the information you need. One of the biggest problems that people face when searching for records in Nebraska is the fact that there is no centralized database and the services provided are very few. It is advisable to conduct a comprehensive research before hand so as to narrow down your choices.

After you have determined the location of where the marriage records are kept then you need to find out the place of storage. The state of Nebraska only holds one central database and the records are kept in various places throughout the state. Therefore, you may have to visit multiple places before getting hold of the desired information. If you know the person’s address and the state of residence then it becomes a lot easier to get the desired information.

After getting all the information regarding the records you are looking for, you can either search them online through the official website of the state or via the methods mentioned below. For accessing the information directly, you can either visit the concerned office or lodge a request in person. Many a times, there are special facilities provided like faxing of the request or online emailing. However, you need to personally go to the office so that you can personally look at the records. The process of searching is same everywhere but obviously you will be assisted with better results in a large state like Nebraska.

You can also get marriage records by going through the local newspapers. However, you may not get all the required information as you may not be able to access all the records in the city. So, this method may not prove to be effective if you want all the records. It will help to check out the official website of the state so that you can get all the details of the records that you may require.

You may also use the services of third party companies. However, there are several disadvantages involved. They charge you for the searches and then require you to pay their fee for processing and delivery. Hence, if you do not want to spend money on these types of companies, it is better to search these records yourself.
