How to Do Search For Marriage Records in Greeley County, Nebraska

Marriage Records in Greeley County Nebraska

Marriage records in Greeley County, Nebraska are maintained and updated by the county offices. Marriage records in Nebraska are not normally available to the general public. The state government holds all official records pertaining to marriages and it includes the marriage license, the names of the couple, the witnesses and the official signature.

The State of Nebraska only recognizes one official method of recording and maintaining official information. This method is through printing a hard copy of the records. Such copies are made in the county office in each county that is involved. The records are then stored in microfilm or digital format. These types of records can be accessed online for the convenience of the individual. However, it should be kept in mind that viewing such records online requires a fee.

Official Record Keeping. As previously mentioned, the official record keeping in Nebraska is done through printing hard copies. Official records are retained for a specific period of time. If an individual wants to obtain the information for a particular period in time, he/she may contact the county office for a current copy of such record. For a fee, you may also request for the records to be emailed to your e-mails.

Electronic records retrieval. Some governmental offices in Nebraska do not require for the retrieval of the records via email or Internet. If you do not have such records, you can request for the fee based online services which would provide you with the access to such records.

Marriage License. As mentioned above, marriage records in Nebraska are kept in microfilm or digital format. At times, the license is not found in the microfilm. To access such records, it is required to contact the county office for the fee. A search will be conducted to retrieve the license from such online sources.

Performing a background check on an individual is now made easier these days. Most of the states allow people to access the marriage records online. However, some of the states in the US do not allow online searches for the records. It has been seen that people who are searching for the records online end up getting the wrong information. So, it is advisable to conduct a background check only if you have the physical copy.

It is important to note that if you are doing a background check, it would mean that you would be requesting for the marriage records and nothing more. The information that would be provided by such a background check would be limited to the personal information contained in the records. The fee that is required for doing this kind of search would also be specific. In some instances, the fee may be $20 while in other instances it may be a little higher. The fees differ as per the number of records requested.

Many of the online search sites would have a limit on the number of records that you can access. However, there are also a few sites that would let you do unlimited searches. You can select the type of records that you want to search and the site would give you the results. However, these records would not be in the same format as what is provided by the county office. The online records search would just give you the location and the name of the person whose marriage records are being requested.
