How to Look Up Marriage Records in Grant County, NE

Marriage Records in Grant County Nebraska

One thing that you might not have known is that in Nebraska, marriage records are not controlled by the State of Nebraska but instead are maintained and run by the county. That means that each county has its own set of records. These records contain information about all of the marriages that were performed in that county in the last seven years. In some instances, county offices hold the records on file for a certain amount of time before they are turned over to the State of Nebraska. The records also have to be maintained for a minimum of three years.

You can request a copy of any marriage records that are in the county of Lincoln in Nebraska. When you search for Lincoln marriage records you will find that the central record office holds more of the information about these records than any other office in the state. Many of the records that are available are from the year that the marriages took place and then the information spans through the next 10 years. The Nebraska State Museum in Lincoln also has access to some of the older records in the county.

If you would like to search for the information that you need by name only, you can use the name search feature. The National Vital Statistics Service (NVS) maintains a name search database that is comparable to the one that is used by most counties in Nebraska. You can search using either the first or last name of the person or just the first name. Like with the birth records, if more information is needed, you can enter more information to narrow down your results. The database provides some basic information about the couple and their parents as well as information about children that was born out of wedlock.

If you are looking for a copy of a record that is more in depth, you will have to go to the county office. You can usually access this type of information through the mail. However, sometimes they require a formal request. If you make this request in the proper manner, you should be able to get the records that you want within about five working days. You should also be prepared to pay a fee for getting the records. These records are usually on microfilm or CD-ROM.

To find out more about marriage records in Nebraska you can contact the county office directly. They should be able to tell you what documentation you need to obtain the records electronically.

This can take anywhere from two weeks to two months depending on how busy they are. If you have any other questions, you can also contact the county office.
