How to Lookup Wake County Marriage Records
Wake County public records are basically held in the local government office where the marriage took place. Most of the records are kept in one of three locations, namely: the county registry, Wake County Records, or the Records Division of the Family Court. Each of these places keep their own records of marriages within their area of jurisdiction. However, they also allow for a person to access the records that others have access to.
There are a few ways in which you can search out these records. A free method is to use the records that are available at the county level. This may include requests made through the mail and fax, as well as personal visits. There is also the option of going online and typing in the name of the person in question into Google or Yahoo. This will give you some basic information, but if the person in question has some sort of social security number, it will not be available. As well, only filings from the state level are considered when conducting a lookup, so if someone has moved around North Carolina, you may not get the information you are looking for.
The cost for this service is nominal in most cases. Usually, if you are looking for marriage records for someone who is deceased, the cost can be minimal. However, if you are doing a more extensive search such as cross referencing two different records to verify information, it may be more expensive. Fortunately, most of the information is freely available on the Internet, so you do not have to pay for it unless you are really searching hard to find something.
You can also opt to use one of the many commercial records databases that are available. While this is an excellent way to get information quickly and easily, you need to make sure that the records are up-to-date and that you are not downloading old information. There are some websites that offer marriage records but their databases are not updated regularly. This can cause the records to be less accurate than the records that are available through the government.
There are ways to make sure that you are getting current information. One of these is to look for the Certificate of Marriage filed with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. This will give you the most current information available and will allow you to search through records to see if anything has changed.
If you have access to this type of information, you may even want to look into getting a copy directly from the county. You can order your own copy online, or you can go to the county’s Vital Statistics Office and request a copy. In either case, you will have to fill out the necessary forms, and you will likely have to wait for a few weeks before you receive your report. It is faster to obtain your information this way. It is also worth noting that marriage records are considered public record once you receive it, so you will need to show proof of a valid address and contact information in order to get the record. This means going to the Wake County courthouse or one of its branches.
