Our marriage records are from 1886 to the present.
To request a copy of an old marriage license, you must know the date of the marriage and the name of the female applicant (Maiden Name) and the male applicant. If the exact marriage date is unknown, we will only research a maximum of a 5-year span that you specify. For Genealogy purposes there is a $5.00 research fee per marriage. A check or money order should be made payable to “Register of Wills”. Please enclose a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope with each request. If you include an email address with your request, we will notify you of the research results and additional charges for copies.
The cost to obtain a copy of an old marriage license is $1.00. If you need a certified copy, the cost is $5.00. Make the check or money order payable to the Register of Wills. Don't forget to include an additional check to cover research fees ($5.00 per marriage).
To request a copy of your marriage license for the purpose of name change or Social Security, etc., we need the date of the marriage, your name and your spouse's name as they appeared on the marriage license. Please make sure that you applied for a marriage license in BEAVER COUNTY as the records exist only in the county in which you applied. The fee for a certified copy of the marriage license is $5.00. If you are making the request by mail, also include a self-addressed stamped envelope with your request.
If you are planning a visit to the Beaver County Courthouse to retrieve this information, you may call ahead with all this information and we will have the copy ready for you when you come in.
