Mississippi marriage records are maintained by state and county officials. You can order a copy of a marriage record from MSDH, and you can have us search for the county in which the marriage license was issued.
Order by mail: mail the form below with a check or money order to us. (Marriage records are available for January 1, 1926 to June 30, 1938, and for January 1, 1942 to present.)
