The record will list the names of the bride and groom along with their parents’ names, the date of the ceremony as well as the marriage license number. In order to access public records such as this in South Carolina, a person must first make an application to the South Carolina’s Department of Health and Welfare.

How do I access public records in Allendale County? To start with, there are currently two different ways to perform a search for marriage records. Searching by name or initialism (first name, last name) or by location of ceremony is currently available. To search by name or initialism, simply enter the couple’s name into the provided fields. When searching by location, you must enter at least one place of the county where the event took place. Once you have entered all the required information, you will then be asked to pay a fee of $2.00 and wait up to five to ten minutes for your report.

Are there other ways to search for marriage records? Yes! If you are looking for certified copies of the records, there are a few places you can look. The fastest way to search for records is to look for the South Carolina Vital Records website, which is actually only a click away.

In addition to searching by name or initialism, you can also request certified copies of your marriage records online. You must fill out a request form and then wait a few minutes while the request is processed. Within a few hours, you should receive your requested records. However, if you would like to obtain the information immediately, you may wish to consider contacting the local courthouse where the ceremony took place. Many courthouses offer the information on their public record websites free of charge.
