General Information About Nebraska Marriage Records and Laws
For those people searching for Nebraska marriage records, the search can be long and frustrating. Because of the fact, the area remained so remote and in the outskirts of the country for so long, the establishment of official offices to collect and organize this information took some time. While records for New England births, deaths and marriages are available since the 1700's,
most Nebraska records are not. However, there are several sources for this information if you know where to look for it. Keep in mind that the obtaining of such information is easier to do when you have as much information as possible regarding those who got married.

The availability and use of Nebraska marriage records may contain a variety of different types of information. In some cases, this information will provide you with the name of the couple along with information regarding where the marriage took place, who presided over the wedding and who the witnesses were. In additional, the maiden name of the bride, the parent's names and even information on the location the couple lived in prior to marriage may be available. This information is dependent on finding the actual marriage certificates.

However, the state of Nebraska did not require that any vital statistics be reported to it until 1904. Marriage information was not required to be provided to the state until 1909, along with divorce records. It took a number of years for this information to be put into place, though. For those who require marriage records from the early 1900's, it can be difficult to gather this information at the state level. However, most recorded marriages at the state level are found at the following location:

Nebraska Department of Health
Vital Records Department
PO Box 95065
Lincoln, Nebraska 68509
Information may or may not be available at this level for early 1900's marriages and for previous years. However, for those who are looking for marriage records from the 1800's, it is best to turn to local services. Many counties contain the records of all marriages that took place in the area. If you know the town in which the marriage took place, this may also be a great source for this information. Each situation is very different though. If the couple was married in a church, the church records may be the best overall source. You can even use newspapers and databases to track down dates and more information.
For those who are looking for Nebraska marriage records, the first step is to contact the Department of Health for the state. If you cannot find the information there, consider the access of such information at the county level. Town information may also provide some answers to your questions. Churches and other religious organizations can also contain this information. However, in many cases, the births, deaths and marriages of those in the early 1800's simply were not recorded in a legal form. For those seeking this information, it can be difficult to obtain without extensive research of documentation of the event.
