Marriage Record Search
Find out about someone's:
There are many reasons why you might want to search through North Dakota marriage records, including information about ancestry, legal or personal reasons. In the state of North Dakota, you can request a copy of the marriage certificate from the county where the marriage license was issued. The North Dakota Department of Health and Vital Records have many records, but they don't issue the licenses from their department, so some records may be missing from the files. If you know the county where the event took place, you can make the request directly to the county clerk. If the event took place before 1925, search through the State's Historical Society. For more help in finding the county, write to the following department:
North Dakota Department of Health Vital Records
600 East Blvd. Avenue; Department 301
Bismarck, ND 58505-0200
Phone: (701) 328-2360
Each county has different rules (and fees) for accessing North Dakota marital records. You'll need to submit a request form and provide photo identification and sometimes state a reason why you want the record. If you don't know or can't locate the county of the marriage, you can bypass going through the state by using an online Internet search site. All you have to do is submit a minimal amount of information about the marriage and pay a reasonable fee. The search will begin immediately and be delivered to you via your home or office computer. If no record is found, there will be no charge. Since these powerful Internet search sites maintain databases and search engines that can plow through records in a matter of minutes, you'll receive the report quickly. You won't have to reveal information about who you are and why you want the record and your payment information is encrypted so no one will know that it was you who requested the record. The report will be concise and up-to-date and might reveal more information than you would receive from a state-issued report. This is especially important if you're using the marriage certificate for legal reasons. It may also help if you're searching for information about your ancestry since one piece of data can lead to much more. The Internet contains a wealth of information that can be accessed easily and can help in many areas of your life. Search sites are especially popular because of the accuracy and rapidity of finding the information.
Searching through files by yourself can be tedious and time-consuming if you don't know what you're doing. To find out how an Internet search site can help you obtain North Dakota marriage records, click on the link.
