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 Oklahoma Marriage Certificates
Statewide recording of births and deaths for Oklahoma began in October 1908, although compliance was incomplete for as long as two decades. Registration was mandated in 1917, but it was another decade before 90-percent compliance was attained. Although county clerks record births and deaths and provide information on request, certificates are available only from the state Vital Records Section.
For birth and death records from October 1908, write:
Oklahoma Department of Health
For prior records, write to the clerk of the county in question.
