You can obtain these records from a central statewide repository or through the individual county’s offices. Regardless of which method you use to search for these records, the process is not difficult and can save you time and money in the long run.

In order to begin your search, you will need the names of the couple involved in the marriage. You will also need the state of residence of the groom or bride, if applicable. You will be able to search using this information as long as there is a record of the marriage in Summers County.

You can narrow your search when you include the state of residency within the search criteria.

Once you have the names and the locations, you can begin searching for the records. To do this, you will need to become a member with the official site of the Clerk of Court in Summers County.

When searching for these records online, it is important that you make sure that the website you are accessing is reputable and well maintained. Websites that claim to offer free searches are usually out to get your money. In many cases they will have incomplete data or even wrong information. The best way to ensure accuracy is to pay the small fee that most online record providers charge and use the assurance they offer of secure transactions.

It is also possible to view the records of someone else who is related to the person you are investigating.
