Marriage Records


Series documents the recording of marriages by the county and includes applications, marriage certificates and licenses, and indexes to marriage records. Information includes the names and residences of bride and groom; justice of the peace, minister, or name of individual officiating; fees charged; date filed; volume and page numbers where recorded; certificate number; date and place of marriage; and signatures of witnesses and county officials. Beginning in 1906 marriages have been officially registered with the state of Oregon. Currently these records are filed with the State Registrar, Vital Statistics Section of the Health Division. Marriage records have been inventoried through 1960.

Most of the records located in the clerk's vault are available as digital images in a searchable database at the clerk's office.
