Marriage Records

Marriage Certificate Request

You can request a Marriage Certificate in person, by mail, or online (certified or non-certified).

Minnesota Official Marriage System (MOMS)

The Minnesota Official Marriage System (MOMS) is a statewide search engine for marriage certificates. MOMS allow the public to search and order a marriage certificate from the custodial county or contact the custodial county directly if it is known where the marriage license was obtained.

Note:  The marriage certificate is filed with the county where the marriage license was obtained, not the county where the marriage took place.

Marriage Record Index On-line

The Clay County Recorder has marriage records from 1872 to present.  Marriage records are open to the public for searching.  The Marriage Record Index On-line is images of handwritten indexes from 1872 through 1939.  These images are usually used by genealogists when a record can't be located, often due to a spelling difference.
