Government Certified Marriage Licenses

Getting a marriage license or information regarding marriage records through the Kentucky Government is superior to other search engines in a couple of cases. All the information given from the Government Offices are considered completely accurate. In addition, the Government is the only way to obtain a certified marriage license.

Certified marriage licenses are required to change your last name, join your partner’s health insurance plan, become a citizen, and much more. Third party websites cannot offer certified copies. So, if you need a certified copy of a marriage license, you must get it from the Kentucky Government Office Of Vital Statistics.

The Office Of Vital Statistics

All Kentucky marriage records from 1958 to the present time are available at the Office Of Vital Statistics. Residents can get a search performed by phone, mail, internet, or by visiting the office. To have a search performed you will need to supply the Office Of Vital Statistics with the following information:

Full Name Of Bride
Full Name Of Groom
Wedding Date
County Where Marriage License Was Issued
Applicable Payment

If you are searching for a marriage record that dates back before 1958, you will need to check with the County Clerk’s Office in which the marriage license was issued. Each county is required to have a record of all marriage licenses that were issued in that specific county. The Office of Vital Statistics doesn’t have any records of marriage before the year of 1958.

Non-Certified Third Party Public Databases

As discussed above, you can obtain information about Kentucky marriage records from third party public databases. While this information acquired can’t be used for any official purposes, it can be helpful to gain knowledge to satisfy your curiosity. In many cases, these third party websites are much cheaper than the certified copies, as you are only being charged for the actual effort to search the public databases.

There are numerous third party websites you can obtain marriage information from. Some of the most popular ones include:

FamilySearch.org
SearchQuarry.com
Ancestry.com

All of these sites can provide you with information about a marriage as long as you have some pieces of information about it. Unlike with the Government Office, you can start your search with a person’s name if you are unaware of what county they got married in. This is very convenient when you don’t have all the specific information regarding when a marriage took place.
