Utah 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 Utah Marriage Certificates

In Utah, the civil registration of births, deaths, and marriages developed slowly, culminating with a statewide system of recording births and deaths beginning in 1905. Early legislative acts empowered, but did not require, certain cities to maintain a register of births and deaths. In 1898, the state legislature provided for central county records, requiring county clerks to keep separate birth and death registers. Since marriage was seen as a religious sacrament, the civil registration of marriages was not required in Utah until 1887.

For birth and death records from 1 January 1905 and marriage records from 1 January 1978, write:

Utah Bureau of Vital Records
288 North 1460 West
Salt Lake City, UT 84114-2855

For prior records, write to the clerk of the county in question.
