Tips For Finding Mississippi Marriage Records Online

There are a number of reasons to look up something like Mississippi marriage records, and if you're someone who is interested in finding this type of record then you're in luck! The internet has made it very easy for anyone to get access to these types of records, as long as they know where to look and what to look for. First, let's start with where to look. There are a number of online websites that you can use to get access to things like Mississippi marriage records, and many of them are free. Just select a website that you're comfortable working with and it's time to get started!

Tip 1: Names

The first tip you should take seriously when searching for Mississippi marriage records concerns names. Names are a vital part of locating records online, whether birth certificates or a divorce certificates. Marriage records are also the same. Often, dates are considered the most important piece of information needed to find records, but that is wrong.  Names are definitely the most important part. If you're having a difficult time finding the right marriage record, make sure you double and triple check the name. Then go back and try using the bride's married name instead of her maiden name. Sometimes little changes like this can help you to find the right certificate.

Tip 2: Parents

When you get a marriage license, you're required to put your parents' names on the license. This can actually be an important inclusion for someone who has hit a researching slump.  It is possible to locate the marriage record you are looking for by searching for the parents' names. For example, if you're having a difficult time finding Mary and John Smith's Mississippi marriage records, try looking online under their parents' names. Since they're listed on the marriage license, too, their names may pop up on the marriage certificate that you're looking for!

Tip 3: Other Options

If you're having a really hard time finding the right Mississippi marriage records, you need to realize that there's a possibility that the people that you're looking for may have been married in another state.  That, of course, means that you must search that state's database, or find a website that has nationwide information.

There are many ways you can locate Mississippi marriage records online. The biggest trick in finding these types of records is to keep track of names and dates as well as parents. These three tips will help you go a long way in finding the records you need. Also, keep in mind that it's a good idea to keep a copy of any Mississippi marriage records you dig up, even if it's only a digital copy, so that you will always have the copy for your researching needs.
