Nevada 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 Nevada Marriage Certificates

Statewide vital records registration for Nevada began in 1911. Though some records exist prior to that time, they are kept within the county recorder's office rather than at the Section of Vital Statistics. There is no statewide index for records prior to 1911, and the index beginning in 1911 has restricted access.

For birth and death records after 1911 and marriage records after 1969, write:

State of Nevada Health Division Bureau of Health Planning and Statistics Office of Vital Records and Statistics
505 E. King Street, Room 102
Carson City, NV 89701-4749
Tel: 775-684-4242

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