Georgia marriage records

Marriage records contain information about the marriage of two people, including the date of marriage, place of marriage, sometimes the names of the mothers and fathers, and even the people who witnessed the marriage. Marriage certificates issued by state and local governments will often include the place of residences, and perhaps even the maiden names of the mothers.

Marriage records have long been used to help with genealogy research. They are considered to be "primary source" records, because the information is recorded by an eye witness, at the time the marriage takes place. The Internet has allowed people to store marriage records into various online archives. This has brought access to online marriage records much more easier for genealogy researchers.

Newspapers frequently publish notices of marriages, and in addition to marriage certificates, are a popular source of research by genealogists.

How to Obtain Georgia Marriage Certificates

Birth and death records began on a statewide level in 1919. Compliance was not considered extensive until 1928. Records before that time were kept on a county basis, and vary from county to county. Marriage records are the most complete, available from the 1700s on in most areas, but also vary from county to county. For birth records after 1919, and marriage records after June, 1952, write:

Georgia Division of Public Health
Vital Records
Room 217-H 47
Trinity Ave., SW
Atlanta, Georgia 30334-5600
Tel: 404-656-4750

For prior records, contact the clerk of the county in question.
